Dead Heat: Clinton Drops Again, Trump Within Two Points Of Her


The latest developments with the Clinton Foundation and the former secretary of state’s emails seem to be continuing to erode her support with voters. A new national poll from the Morning Consult has Republican nominee Donald Trump trailing Clinton by a mere two points, TownHall reports. It’s a statistical dead heat. When you factor in the other candidates into the poll, the Consult found that Clinton’s lead remains at two points (via The Hill):

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton leads Republican rival Donald Trump by 2 points in a new national poll, within the survey’s margin of error.

Clinton leads Trump, 42 percent to 40 percent, in a two-way race in the Morning Consult poll released Sunday morning.

Just three weeks ago, Clinton led Trump by 7 points in the same poll, 44 percent to 37 percent.

When third-party candidates are factored into the new poll, Clinton maintains a 2-point lead over Trump, with 38 percent support for the former secretary of State, 36 percent for the real estate mogul, 9 percent for Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and 4 percent for Green Party nominee Jill Stein.
