Two new U.S. political surveys Sunday showed Democrat Hillary Clinton with a growing advantage in the U.S. presidential contest over her Republican challenger, Donald Trump, but they differed in the extent of her lead.

A Washington Post-ABC News poll said support for Trump, the billionaire real estate mogul making his first try for elected office, has plunged in recent weeks, giving Clinton a 51-to-39 percent edge nationwide among registered voters. Just a month ago, a poll by the same news organizations had Trump ahead of the former U.S. secretary of state, 46-44.

Another poll, by The Wall Street Journal and NBC News, showed Clinton, seeking to become the first female U.S. president, with a 46-41 edge, a two-point gain over the last month.

An average of several recent polls give Clinton an edge of more than 6 percentage points after the race was believed to be virtually a deadheat a month ago.

The two newest polls come after a series of high-profile controversies involving Trump, including his attack on the Mexican heritage of an American-born judge hearing a consumer fraud case involving one of Trump's defunct businesses, Trump's firing of his campaign manager and weak campaign fundraising in May that was dwarfed by Clinton's.
