The new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll shows Democrat Hillary Clinton heading into the first presidential debate with a 6 point lead over Republican Donald Trump.
From NBC News:
In a four-way horserace, Clinton gets support from 43 percent of likely voters and Trump gets 37 percent, while Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson is at 9 percent and the Green Party's Jill Stein is at 3 percent.
In a head-to-head matchup without those third-party candidates, Clinton's advantage expands to seven points, 48 percent to 41 percent. This is the NBC/WSJ poll's first general-election poll of likely voters in the 2016 race.
The poll was conducted after her bout of mild pneumonia.
Sixty-eight percent of Hillary supporters say they will definitely vote for her; 66% of Trump supporters say the same of their candidate.
A majority of Hillary voters (50%) say their vote is for her as opposed to against Trump (44%).
Forty-one percent of Trump voters say their vote is more about supporting him than opposing Hillary; 51% of his supporters identify their votes as an "anti-Hillary" vote.
The survey also shows President Obama's approval rating at 52%.
