Poll: Trump Now Just 3 Points Behind Hillary Nationally

Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump now finds himself just 3 percentage points behind Hillary Clinton, according to a new national poll released Tuesday. The NBC News/SurveyMonkey Poll of more than 14,000 adults gave Clinton 48 percent to Trump’s 45 percent. Among minorities, though, Clinton has a whopping 75 percentage-point lead over Trump. The billionaire businessman, however, tops the former secretary of State among men and whites. While Clinton still edges her Democratic rival Bernie Sanders nationally—54 percent to Sanders’s 40 percent—the Vermont senator defeats Trump by a greater margin in a hypothetical matchup, 53 percent to 41 percent.
