WASHINGTON Oct. 12 (UPI) — The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll released Wednesday shows Hillary Clinton extending her lead over Donald Trump to 6.4 percentage points.

The online poll shows Clinton with 50.63 percent, to Trump’s 44.22 percent.

Trump mostly held steady, while Clinton gained 0.4 percent compared to data collected a day earlier. Clinton continued expanding her lead in the days after a video emerged of Trump joking about groping women and Sunday’s debate, where Trump called it “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. 5 to 11, when 1,927 individuals were surveyed. Of them, 1,367 identified themselves as likely voters.
