Clinton’s Lead over Trump Shrinks to 3 Points Nationwide
Hillary Clinton’s one strong lead over Donald Trump has evaporated to only 3 points nationwide.
The Hill reports:
Clinton leads Trump, 47 to 44 percent, in the NBC News/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday.
Clinton had a 5-point edge over Trump, 48 to 43 percent, in the same poll last week.
Pollsters also found in the new survey that 82 percent think Clinton’s use of a private email server while secretary of State was “not appropriate,” versus 15 percent who say it was.
Fifty-six percent also disagree with FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation last week that Clinton not face criminal charges, while 41 percent say he made the right call.
In addition, two-thirds say Clinton is neither honest nor trustworthy.
Sixty-two percent view Trump unfavorably, however, only 2 points higher than Clinton’s 60 percent rating.
NBC News/Survey Monkey conducted its latest sampling of 7,869 adults who say they are registered to vote via online interviews from July 4 to 10. It has a 1.4 percentage point margin of error.
Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, leads Trump, her GOP counterpart, by about 5 points nationwide in the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
