Hillary looks like she’s ready for bed.

Hillary Clinton sank to 39% 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% support to Clinton’s 39% among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42% to 38% a week ago. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson now earns seven percent (7% ) of the vote, down from nine percent (9% ) the previous two weeks, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein picks up three percent (3% ) support. Three percent (3% ) like some other candidate, and seven percent (7% ) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Clinton’s support has been trending down from a high of 44% 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% 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% of Republicans, down from 76% a week ago. Clinton has 73% of the Democratic vote, down from 79% in the previous survey.
