The poll shows Clinton leading Trump, 46 percent to 34 percent, among registered voters and finds a similar margin for Clinton among likely voters.
Clinton is solidifying her backing among her party’s regulars — climbing to the support of 92 percent of Democrats, up from 85 percent in June, according to the poll. Meanwhile, Trump garners support from only 79 percent of Republicans — exactly even with his showing in June.
Another warning sign for Trump: 2 in 3 voters say Trump lacks the temperament to be president. Only 27 percent say he has the right temperament for the job — a new low for the candidate in Monmouth’s polls.
Still, voters show distaste for Clinton as well as Trump, giving both low marks in favorability. Nearly half of voters admit they are less enthusiastic than usual about this election compared with past presidential races. That’s up from only 2 in 10 voters in June 2015.
