A new Monmouth University poll out Monday shows Hillary Clinton is leading the Republican nominee by 11 points after the first presidential debate, 49 percent to 38 percent.

Seven percent of the likely voters polled support Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson, while three percent support Green Party candidate Jill Stein.

“Some polls had suggested that Colorado was becoming more competitive,” said Monmouth University Polling Institute’s Patrick Murray. “That may have been true last month, but it does not appear to be the case now.”

A CNN/ORC poll taken last week suggested Clinton only had a one point lead over Trump. Additionally, the Real Clear Politics average shows Clinton up by one point.

The Monmouth poll questioned 400 likely voters from Sept. 29 to Oct. 2. It has a plus or minus 4.5 percent margin of error.
