The US Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, startes the current week of the last presidential debate with a four-percent lead over her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, according to a recent national survey.

A poll released on Wednesday by Washington Post-ABC News found that the former Secretary of State has the backing of 47 percent of likely voters, compared to 43 percent of the New York billionaire.

Such figures represent an advance in comparison to the inquiry made by the media outlets before the first presidential debate, in late September, when Clinton only led by two points, 46 vs. 44 percent.

The new survey, held from October 10th to 13th, took place following the release of a video dating to 2005, in which the tycoon makes lewd comments on sexual abuse against women, a recording that led many members of the red party to withdraw their support.

According to the Washington Post, nearly 70 percent of respondents said they believe that the Republican candidate probably made unwelcome sexual advances, and most also agreed that his apology was not sincere.

In other surveys, such as the one made by NBC News / Wall Street Journal, the Democratic candidate exceeds her strongest rival by 11 points, while according to the RealClearPolitics, she is leading by 5.5 points.

It seems that this is how they will reach the third and final presidential debate before the elections, to be held on October 19th at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.
