Trump is in trouble. That’s obvious with all of the “rigged election” nonsense he’s been spouting. With 23 days before the election, time is quickly running out for Trump to mount any kind of comeback.
The latest NBC/WSJ poll is not good news for Donald Trump and the results are with all four candidates included:
Hillary Clinton is ahead of Donald Trump by double digits with just over three weeks until Election Day, according to a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted entirely after the second presidential debate.
In a four-way race, Democrat Clinton holds an 11-point lead over Republican Trump 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.
Ironically, Trump does somewhat better when the race is head to head. Hillary leads 51-41 without Gary Johnson and Jill Stein included. Hillary supporters can tell their friends, “A vote for Johnson or Stein is a vote for Trump!”
An eleven point lead. Barack Obama didn’t have a lead this large at all in 2012.
One interesting nugget was dug up by Liam Donovon and it’s related to the value of divided government:
Per NBC/WSJ, RVs 13pts more likely to support a GOP candidate who will be a check on HRC than a Dem promising to help pass her agenda. pic.twitter.com/J8L2cDOUHF

That’s pretty big. Reason being, is it bodes well for Republicans down ticket, who otherwise might be in big trouble in some races.
