Hillary Clinton

Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 12 points in the ABC News 2016 tracking poll published on Sunday, 50 percent to 38 percent.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received five percent in the poll, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein raked in two percent.

The poll results reveal 69 percent of respondents do not approve of Trump’s response regarding his treatment of women.

“After a series of allegations of past sexual misconduct, the poll finds that some women who’d initially given him the benefit of the doubt have since moved away,” ABC News reports.

Sixty-five percent of respondents also disapprove of his statement that he may not accept the election results.

The poll questioned 874 likely voters in both English and Spanish on Oct. 20 to Oct. 22 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

Thirty-six percent of those surveyed identify as Democrats while 31 percent identify as Independents. Twenty-seven percent of those polled said they were Republicans.

The Real Clear Politics average currently shows Clinton leading Trump by roughly six points.
