New poll shows Clinton's double-digit lead over Trump before final debate

Updated: 2016-10-18 09:15

Sixty percent of voters say Clinton has the right temperament to be president, compared to only 31 percent who say the same about Trump.

Clinton also leads on the question of which candidate is considered the "lesser of two evils," with 47 percent saying they'll vote to make sure Trump does not get elected, and only 40 percent saying the same about Clinton.

The poll found Trump has been badly damaged by the audio release of his obscene remarks from 2005 and the mounting allegations from women who say he sexually harassed them, with 62 percent of voters said they believe the allegations against Trump are credible.

In comparison, only 25 percent of respondents said Clinton's remarks made to Wall Street banks in paid speeches make them less likely to support her. Almost half, 45 percent, said the remarks had no impact on how they view her, and 28 percent said they were unaware of the WikiLeaks dump.

The Monmouth University survey of 805 registered voters nationwide was conducted between Oct. 14 and Oct. 16 and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
