Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in two new polls
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump in the race for the White House, according to two new polls of registered voters.
A Washington Post/ABC News survey shows Clinton ahead by 12 points — 51% to 39%.
A Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll pegs Clinton’s lead at five points — 46% to 41%.
Trump recently fired his campaign manager, and he has had lackluster fundraising. He’s also received criticism from his party over his labeling of an Indiana-born federal judge as “Mexican.”
The 12-point Clinton advantage suggests Trump’s troubles have badly damaged his campaign.
This weekend, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released an ad slamming Trump for his reaction to Brexit — with Britain voting to leave the European Union in a referendum.
