Clin­ton ap­pears on cusp of a com­mand­ing vic­tory

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - NATION + WORLD -

Hil­lary Clin­ton ap­pears on the cusp of a po­ten­tially com­mand­ing vic­tory over Don­ald Trump, fu­eled by solid Demo­cratic turnout in early vot­ing, mas­sive oper­a­tional ad­van­tages and in­creas­ing en­thu­si­asm among her sup­port­ers.

A new As­so­ci­ated Press-GfK poll re­leased Wed­nes­day finds the Demo­cratic nom­i­nee has grabbed sig­nif­i­cant ad­van­tages over her Repub­li­can ri­val with just 12 days left be­fore Elec­tion Day. Among them: con­sol­i­dat­ing the sup­port of her party and even win­ning some Repub­li­cans.

“I’m go­ing to pick Hil­lary at the top and pick Repub­li­can straight down the line,” said poll re­spon­dent Wil­liam Gold­stein, a 71-year-old from Long Is­land, New York, who voted for Mitt Rom­ney in 2012. “I can’t vote for Trump.”

Over­all, the poll shows Clin­ton lead­ing Trump na­tion­ally by a stag­ger­ing 14 per­cent­age points among likely vot­ers, 51-37.
