    Donald Trump trails Hillary Clinton by double digits among likely voters, following revelations about his sexually aggressive comments about women in a 2005 recording, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Conducted on Saturday and Sunday but before the second presidential debate, the poll shows Clinton with 46 percent support among likely voters in a four-way matchup, compared to 35 percent for Trump.

    Libertarian Gary Johnson's support stands at nine percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein garners two percent. In a head-to-head matchup, Clinton's lead over Trump grows to 14 percentage points (52 percent to Trump's 38 percent.)

    Clinton's lead among all registered voters is 13 points, her largest over Trump since the poll began testing the pair last September.

    Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Oct. 20, 2016, Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all the people of the United Staes that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win,” Donald Trump said, emphasizing the last three words by pointing into the crowd. The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up. At the debate, he said he would have to wait and see what the results were. (Published Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016)

    The poll of 500 registered voters has a margin of error of 4.4 percent for all registered voters and 4.6 percent for likely voters.
