A new poll shows Hillary Clinton has opened up a 4-point lead against Donald Trump in the race to be the next President of the United States.
The CBS News/New York Times poll showed Democratic presidential nominee Ms Clinton making the gain following the first candidates' debate.
It also comes after Mr Trump responded to revelations he may have avoided paying tax for almost two decades, saying he used the law to his benefit.
A separate Reuters/Ipsos online poll showed that a majority of Americans felt that Clinton won last week's presidential debate.
