Despite assuring Republicans he would beat Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton very easily in the general election, Donald Trump trails the former secretary of state by almost 10 points in a new poll released Wednesday. According to the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll of registered voters, Clinton would edge Trump 50-41 percent if the two candidates went head-to-head in November. The former first lady has expanded her lead over Trump by six points since September. Trump, the thrice-married billionaire who's been heavily criticized for his treatment of women, trails Clinton by 21 percentage points among women voters in the same poll, although he leads her by 5 percent among men.
