CNN poll gives Trump an edge, while NBC finds solid Clinton lead

A new CNN/ORC poll puts Republican nominee Donald Trump narrowly ahead among likely voters by 45 percent to 43 percent, though its survey of registered voters gives his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton a three-point lead (44% to 41%).

An NBC/SurveyMonkey poll of registered voters, however, shows Clinton’s lead holding at six percentage points — 48% to 42% — in a head-to-head race. Her lead diminishes to four points — 41% to 37% — in polling that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein.

Another survey, this one by The Washington Post looking at all 50 states, shows Clinton with a solid lead in terms of electoral college votes, and even strength in some traditional Republican strongholds.
