DETROIT - Brand new exclusive poll numbers after the second presidential debate and after Donald Trump's comments about women from 11 years ago reveal major damage to his campaign in Michigan.
Right now, Hillary Clinton is 12 points ahead of Trump in Michigan.
It only took a few short weeks to change the race from a three-point lead to a 12-point lead. The numbers were taken after the bombshell Billy Bush tape, and voters appear to be very unforgiving.
Local 4's last poll numbers showed 65 percent of voters think Trump is unqualified to be president. Only 68 percent of Republican voters said they'll vote for him, which presents a real problem.
In the Metro Detroit region, Clinton leads by 18 points. Outside of Metro Detroit, Clinton leads by only five points in the rest of Michigan.
This trend causes worry among down ballot Republicans, because if the top of the ticket can't draw people to vote, the rest of the party will feel the effects on election night.
