The poll suggests that Trump has soared during Clinton’s absence on the campaign trail, after she collapsed after a 9/11 ceremony in New York City raising questions about her health.

Clinton returns to the campaign trail today, speaking at a rally in North Carolina.

The USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Poll asks roughly 3000 American citizens each day about the presidential race in order to reflect the political pulse of the country.
