This new poll result came out after our poll wrap-up showing things are already bad for Donald Trump. Now it is worse. A new ABC News tracking poll shows Hillary Clinton is laying the smack down on Donald Trump a lot harder than The Rock did any of his opponents, during his time in the WWE.
Hillary Clinton has vaulted to a double-digit advantage in the inaugural ABC News 2016 election tracking poll, boosted by broad disapproval of Donald Trump on two controversial issues: His treatment of women and his reluctance to endorse the election’s legitimacy.
Likely voters by a vast 69-24 percent disapprove of Trump’s response to questions about his treatment of women. After a series of allegations of past sexual misconduct, the poll finds that some women who’d initially given him the benefit of the doubt have since moved away.
Fifty-nine percent of likely voters, moreover, reject Trump’s suggestion that the election is rigged in Clinton’s favor, and more, 65 percent, disapprove of his refusal to say whether he’d accept a Clinton victory as legitimate. Most strongly disapprove, a relatively rare result.
All told, Clinton leads Trump by 12 percentage points among likely voters, 50 to 38 percent, in the national survey, her highest support and his lowest to date in ABC News and ABC News/Washington Post polls. Gary Johnson has 5 percent support, Jill Stein 2 percent.
The results mark a dramatic shift from Clinton’s +4 points in the last ABC/Post poll Oct. 13.

Well isn’t that just dandy?
Hillary Clinton is hitting 50% in a four-way poll. Now that people are recognizing Gary Johnson has likely smoked a little too much of the hippie lettuce, those voters are moving back to Clinton and boosting her totals. People were worried Johnson was going to take from Trump, but that was not the case.
This is right around the time voters decide to break one way or the other, and from what we are seeing, they’re not moving in Trump’s direction.
