Voters view Clinton as the more qualified candidate
According to the final national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, Clinton holds a four-point lead over Trump, with 44% of support from likely voters in a four-way matchup, while Trump gets 40%. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has 6%, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein has 2%.
In a two-way contest, Clinton’s lead expands to five points, 48%-43%.
An ABC News/Washington Post poll finds similar results, with Clinton ahead by five points, 48%-43%. It’s Clinton’s best result since Oct. 26, bolstered by voters’ view of the Democratic candidate as being more qualified than Trump to serve as president, according to the poll.
Both polls were conducted in the first week of November, after FBI Director James Comey announced the bureau was examining additional emails related to Clinton’s use of a private server.
The margin of error for the ABC News/Washington Post poll is 2.5 percentage points, and the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll holds a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
