Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump by double digits with just more than three weeks until Election Day, making her the clear favorite in the 2016 presidential contest, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street poll conducted after the second presidential debate.
In a four-way horserace, the Democratic nominee holds an 11-point lead over the GOP candidate among likely voters, 48 percent to 37 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 2 percent.
In a two-way contest without Johnson and Stein, Clinton is ahead by 10 points, 51 percent to 41 percent.
"Donald Trump's chances of winning this election have faded," says Democratic pollster Fred Yang of Hart Research Associates, which conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff and his firm Public Opinion Strategies.

"This poll is showing the writing on the wall," Yang adds.
