Clinton has led nearly all national polling in recent months, sometimes by as many as 14 points. Her national lead is 6.5 points in RealClearPolitics's polling average.

While Wednesday's poll show Trump ahead in the four-way race, Clinton edges him out by 3 points in a head-to-head matchup.

And 50 percent of those surveyed said they think Clinton will become the next president; 25 percent predicted Trump would win and 19 percent called it too close to call.

Trump has frequently cast doubt on polls that show him trailing, arguing they fail to capture his grassroots support.

“Even though we’re doing pretty good in the polls, I don’t believe the polls anymore,” he said during Tuesday a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. "I don’t believe them.”

“If there’s 10 [polls], and if there’s one or two bad ones, that’s the only one they show. Believe me, folks, we’re doing great."

IBD/TIPP conducted its poll of 788 likely voters via cellphone and landline telephone interviews Oct. 13–18. It has a 3.6 percentage point margin of error.
