Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is still leading Hillary Clinton in the L.A. Times daily tracking poll, days after the first presidential debate.

The poll shows Trump with 46.7 percent support while Clinton has 42.9 percent—a 3.8 percent lead.

A Reuters and a PPP poll released Wednesday both showed Clinton four points ahead nationally.

The USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Poll asks one-seventh — about 450 people — of an estimated 3,200 American citizens each day about the presidential race in order to reflect the political pulse of the country.
