With the presidential election about two months away, the results of a new CNN/ORC International poll show a tight race between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
The survey of likely voters showed Trump with a 45 percent to 43 percent advantage over Clinton, with the two-point gap within the poll’s margin of error.
Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson has the support of 7 percent of likely voters, while Green Party candidate is at just 2 percent.
Meanwhile, Clinton has significant advantages among women, non-whites, younger voters and College graduates.
Among a larger sample of registered voters, Clinton leads Trump by 44 percent to 41 percent, although that is narrower than the eight-point lead she held in an early-August CNN/ORC Poll.
The latest CNN/ORC poll compares to the RealClearPolitics average of recent polls showing Clinton with a 46.2 percent to 42.9 percent lead over Trump.
The survey of 886 registered voters and 786 likely voters was conducted September 1st through 4th and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
