A new poll shows Hillary Clinton's lead grew immediately after Friday's revelations of Donald Trump's lewd comments about women back in 2005.

The NBC News - Wall Street Journal poll shows that in a four-way ballot, Clinton leads Trump by 11 points among likely voters, 46 to 35 percent.
 
That's up from Clinton's 6-point lead in last month's poll. And in a head to head match-up.. Clinton's lead is now 14 points (52-38 percent).
 
The survey was taken *after* the comments became known Friday, but *before* last night's debate.
 
Regarding the 2005 Trump audio.. 41 percent polled say his words are "completely unacceptable," while 31 percent say they're inappropriate but typical of how some men talk in private.
 
This NBC/WSJ poll was conducted Oct. 8-9 of 500 registered voters (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 4.4 percentage points) And 447 likely voters (which has a margin of error of plus-minus 4.6 percentage points).
