(WWBT) -

Democrat Hillary Clinton is ahead of Republican Donald Trump by double digits, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted entirely after the second presidential debate.

In a four-way race, Clinton holds an 11-point lead over Trump among likely voters, 48 percent to 37 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson is at seven percent, and Green Party's Jill Stein is at two percent.

Clinton holds a 10-point lead over Trump in a two-way contest, 51 percent to 41 percent.

An earlier NBC/Wall Street Journal poll also found Clinton leading by double digits among likely voters. That poll was conducted just two days after the 2005 video of Trump came to the limelight.

However, after another day of polling taken immediately after the Oct. 9 debate, the entire Oct. 8-10 poll showed Clinton's lead at nine points in the four-way contest, 46 percent to 37 percent, and 10 points in a head-to-head race, 50 percent to 40 percent.

According to the latest poll numbers, Clinton also holds a 20-point lead among female voters, 55 percent to 30 percent, while Trump is head among men, 48 percent to 45 percent.

Clinton is also leading among African American voters, 86 percent to 9 percent, non-white voters, 76 percent to 16 percent, and those between ages 18 to 34, 54 percent to 36 percent.

However, Trump is leading among independents, 41 percent to 36 percent, and white voters, 51 percent to 40 percent. Those without a college degree prefer Trump by a 56 percent to 36 percent margin, while those with college degrees prefer both Trump and Clinton evenly, 45 percent to 45 percent.
