Poll: Clinton 45, Trump 40, Johnson 6, Stein 3

In the four-way race, women back Clinton 53 – 33 percent as men back Trump 49 – 37 percent. White voters go Republican 51 – 38 percent while non-white voters go Democratic 63 – 18 percent.

The biggest shift is among independent voters, who go from 42 – 35 percent for Trump, with 15 percent for Johnson September 26 to 46 – 32 percent for Clinton, with 10 percent for Johnson today. Republicans back Trump 87 – 5 percent while Democrats back Clinton 89 – 3 percent.

“Post-debate, Hillary Clinton checks all the boxes. With her base of women and non- white voters now solidly behind her and independent voters moving into her column, Donald Trump gets a wake-up call,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. “The Indies are leaving in droves.”
