Democrat Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead over Republican rival Donald Trump among likely voters, according to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll.

In a head-to-head matchup between Clinton and Trump, the former secretary of state leads the businessman and former reality TV star by 14 points. When Green Party nominee Jill Stein and Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson are included, Clinton's lead shrinks to 11 points—still far above Clinton's current average of 5.1 points in a four-way race.

The poll was conducted on Oct. 8 and 9—after the Washington Post revealed a 2005 recording of Trump boasting about his ability to sexually assault women because he's famous, but before Sunday night's presidential debate

The poll surveyed 500 registered voters (a relatively small sample size) and has a margin of error of +/- 4.6 percent for likely voters.
