HILARY DROPS in Latest Reuters-Ispos Poll – Leads Trump by Only 3 Points
Democrat Hillary Clinton dropped several points this week to lead Donald Trump by only 3 points on Friday.
This comes after a week of lies about her illegal email server and reckless use of top secret documents.
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican rival Donald Trump has narrowed to less than 3 percentage points, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Friday.
Polls released just at the beginning of the week found that Clinton had a larger lead, ranging from 7% in a CBS poll to as high as 9% in CNN/ORC’s poll.
Friday’s poll found that about 42 percent of likely voters favored Clinton, to Trump’s 39 percent.
The poll, taken between July 31 and August 4 had a credibility interval of plus or minus 3 percentage points, meaning that the results suggest the race is roughly even.
Among registered voters over the same period, Clinton held a lead of five percentage points, down from eight percentage points on Monday, according to the poll.
The reasons behind the shift were unclear.
