Hillary looks like she’s ready for bed.

Hillary Clinton sank to 39{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} support with likely voters in the latest Rasmussen poll.
This was her lowest mark since early August.
Rasmussen reported:

Hillary Clinton’s post-convention lead has disappeared, putting her behind Donald Trump for the first time nationally since mid-July.

The latest weekly Rasmussen Reports White House Watch shows Trump with 40{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} support to Clinton’s 39{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} to 38{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} a week ago. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson now earns seven percent (7{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) of the vote, down from nine percent (9{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) the previous two weeks, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein picks up three percent (3{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) support. Three percent (3{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) like some other candidate, and seven percent (7{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) are undecided.

Clinton’s support has been trending down from a high of 44{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} in early August just after the Democratic National Convention. This is her lowest level of support since mid-July. Trump’s support has been eroding, too, from his high of 44{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} at that time. A one-point lead is statistically insignificant in a survey with a +/- 3 percentage point of margin of error. It highlights, however, that this remains a very close race.

Both major candidates have lost some support this week from voters in their respective parties. Trump now has the backing of 71{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of Republicans, down from 76{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} a week ago. Clinton has 73{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of the Democratic vote, down from 79{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} in the previous survey.
