Hillary Clinton has widened her lead over Donald Trump, polling 14 percentage points ahead nationally, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll, which comes 12 days before the presidential election.
Conducted after the final presidential debate, the poll finds the Democratic nominee leads Trump among likely voters 51% to 37%, a significant lead over the Republican candidate.
According to the poll, Clinton has support of 90% of likely Democratic voters, as well as support from 15% of moderate Republicans. Of the Republicans surveyed, 79% said they would vote for Trump.
Mr. Biden is currently ahead of Mr. Trump by 14 percentage points, garnering 50 percent of the vote compared with 36 percent for Mr. Trump. That is among the most dismal showings of Mr. Trump’s presidency, and a sign that he is the clear underdog right now in his fight for a second term.
But among a striking cross-section of voters, the distaste for Mr. Trump has deepened as his administration failed to stop a deadly disease that crippled the economy and then as he responded to a wave of racial-justice protests with angry bluster and militaristic threats. The dominant picture that emerges from the poll is of a country ready to reject a president whom a strong majority of voters regard as failing the greatest tests confronting his administration.
Mr. Biden leads Mr. Trump by enormous margins with black and Hispanic voters, and women and young people appear on track to choose Mr. Biden by an even wider margin than they favored Hillary Clinton over Mr. Trump in 2016. But the former vice president has also drawn even with Mr. Trump among male voters, whites and people in middle age and older — groups that have typically been the backbones of Republican electoral success, including Mr. Trump’s in 2016.
Arlene Myles, 75, of Denver, said she had been a Republican for nearly six decades before switching her registration to independent earlier this year during Mr. Trump’s impeachment trial. Ms. Myles said that when Mr. Trump was first elected, she had resolved to “give him a chance,” but had since concluded that he and his party were irredeemable.
“I was one of those people who stuck by Nixon until he was waving goodbye,” Ms. Myles said. “I thought I was a good Republican and thought they had my values, but they have gone down the tubes these last few years.”
Ms. Myles said she planned to vote for Mr. Biden, expressing only one misgiving: “I wish he was younger,” she said.
Most stark may be Mr. Biden’s towering advantage among white women with college degrees, who support him over Mr. Trump by 39 percentage points. In 2016, exit polls found that group preferred Mrs. Clinton to Mr. Trump by just 7 percentage points. The poll also found that Mr. Biden has narrowed Mr. Trump’s advantage with less-educated white voters.
The exodus of white voters from the G.O.P. has been especially pronounced among younger voters, an ominous trend for a party that was already heavily reliant on older Americans.
Biden is not a solution But he will alest listen to his OWN ADVISERS .

Polls or no polls Quote - Trump from Tulsa, Oklahoma, I told them you test more you get more positive test results so I said SLOW DOWN testing .
Me and my room mate just went a got tested 2 days back In tucson Az 500 k city ONE count them ONE testing site way way out in the boonies at a closed down CVS .
No walk through at all anyware And going on line I can FIND no other testing sites at all ( but constant advertisements cvs Walgreens saying walk up drive through ..
Going past them Signs in the windows NO TESTING here . Stats are getting no more bail outs So are making getting tested as hard as possible to keep people from seeing just how bad its getting .
even with all this in the last 2 weeks AZ went from 10 k to 40 and that is WITH the state depressing the testing .
Only good news is any 2 weeks will will hit max cases and start the LONG LONG down ward trend .
Every one wants to point to dems . Then do there best to give Trump passes with him saying things like Tulsa Well AZ is repub CA is dem pick your poison .
I could go through the list and ever state and every big city over 200 k has the same problems Other then states Like Georgia which still show less and if you believe thous numbers i know some good swamp land in Florida for sale .
The virus does not care at all how much you hate or love trump but if the 80 % of us would aleast ware a mask in public buildings we can reduce the spread .
It is working in S Korea and Japan people are still getting sick but even after no lock down the numbers of new stay lower . Biden is not a solution But he will alest listen to his OWN ADVISERS .
