October 20 was after the first Democratic presidential debate, but before the Benghazi Inquisition. Suddenly, weeks of surprisingly consistent results were turned on their head, with Hillary Clinton gaining a net 21 points. The shift amounts to a net 33-point gain since we started the community straw poll in early June.

The question today is whether Clinton’s bump was short-lived, whether she got another one from the Benghazi hearings, or whether we have a new consistent normal. Vote, and let’s find out!
