Democrats should control Congress, according to respondents to a national poll by NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Monday. The poll comes as Republicans worry about Donald Trump's impact on whether they can maintain a majority in Congress.
Respondents preferred Democrats by a margin of 49 to 42 percent, the party's biggest advantage since October 2013, according the poll, which was conducted immediately after the revelation of Trump's lewd 2005 comments but before Sunday night's debate.
The poll said Clinton is also leading Trump by 11 points in a four-way ballot with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green party candidate Jill Stein.

The poll also has these numbers on the 2005 audio of Trump:
The poll was taken October 8 through the 9 by 500 registered voters with a margin of error of plus-minus 4.4 percentage points.
