Donald Trump gains ground as support for Hillary Clinton slips.

WASHINGTON — Businessman Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination, trails likely Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by 6 percentage points among registered voters in a post-debate poll released Wednesday.Washington – The New York real estate mogul Donald Trump is holding on his top position among the crowded Republican presidential field by a wide margin and has won the party’s trust on top issues more than any other candidates, a new CNN/ORC poll said on Tuesday.

Trump, who is leading the rest of the Republican field by double digits, would lose to Clinton, a former U.S. secretary of state and U.S. senator, 51 percent to 45 percent, according to the CNN/ORC International survey taken Aug. 13-16, after the first Republican presidential debate. Despite the high favourability rate, however, Trump is not regarded by the party’s majority as the ideal candidate to win back the White House from the Democrats. As many as 58 percent of Republicans believe the Republican Party would have a better chance to win in 2016 with someone else other than Trump among the top tier.

In recent days, Trump has called for deporting all unauthorized immigrants and for ending the 14th Amendment’s guarantee of citizenship for anyone born in the U.S. Clinton for the Democratic nomination, which is down 9 points since July and is the first time her support has fallen below 50 percent in a national CNN/ORC poll on the race.
