A new Washington Post/ABC News poll shows Hillary Clinton with a double-digit lead, 51 percent to 39 percent.

Trump quickly took to Twitter to blast the poll.

 

He had a point, as other polls show a tighter race, but with Clinton still holding a lead.

An NBC / Wall Street Journal poll gives Clinton a slight bump over Trump —  46 percent to 41 percent.

In the poll, which tested polticians and institutions, according to NBC: "The most disliked of all is Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, who is viewed unfavorably by a full 60 percent of the electorate, while only 29 percent offer a positive rating of the GOP standard-bearer (-31 rating)."

The most popular institution polled by NBC/Wall Street Journal was the FBI with 48 percent.
