WASHINGTON, Oct. 14 (UPI) — The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll released Friday showed Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 5.07 points.

The online poll showed Clinton with 50.30 percent, to Trump’s 45.23 percent. The poll showed Clinton lost .15 percent in comparison to the day earlier, while Trump gained .51 percent over the same time period. Clinton’s lead continues in the fallout of a video that showed Trump joking about groping women and the most recent debate, where Trump dismissed his comments as “locker room talk.”

The UPI/CVoter online tracking poll surveys about 200 people each day, leading to a sample size of roughly 1,400 people during any seven-day span.

Because the poll is conducted online and individuals self-select to participate, a margin of error cannot be calculated. The poll has a credibility interval of 3 percentage points. This seven-day span includes data collected Oct. 7 to 13, when 2,069 individuals were surveyed. Of them, 1,482 identified themselves as likely voters.
