ABC/WaPo Poll: Trump Takes 1-Point Lead

A new national poll puts Hillary Clinton 1 percentage point behind Donald Trump following the FBI’s announcement that new emails surfaced in an investigation of her private email server. Enthusiasm for the Democratic presidential candidate has waned slightly, according to the ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll. This is the first time Clinton has been behind Trump nationally since May. The new poll shows 46 percent of likely voters surveyed in support of Trump, with 45 percent behind Clinton. According to ABC News, for illustrative purposes, the division between the two candidates is only 0.7 of a percentage point. Behind the two major-party candidates, Gary Johnson comes in at 3 percent, a new low for the Libertarian candidate. Jill Stein remains last at 2 percent support. Notably, the percentage difference between Trump and Clinton is within the poll’s margin of error.
