Jordain Carney of The Hill reports on a national poll in which Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has narrowed to five points:
Clinton tops her likely general election rival by 5 points, 45.6 to 40.4 percent, in the USA Today/Suffolk University poll released on Monday.
Two months ago, Clinton led the businessman by double digits, 50 to 39 percent, in that poll.
Including Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein as potential options drops Clinton’s lead over Trump to 4 points, 39 percent to 35 percent.
Monday’s poll comes as both Clinton and Trump have solidified their standing as their parties’ presumptive nominees despite their in-the-red favorability ratings.
