Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has edged ahead of Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by a point for the first time since May, an ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll out Tuesday has found.
The poll also registered a seven point decline for Clinton in the share of likely voters who are strongly enthusiastic about her, a possible reflection of the renewed controversy over her use of a private server while secretary of state, pollster Gary Langer said.
The new poll was taken from October 27-30, a period that includes FBI director James Comey's October 28 announcement that his agents had found a new trove of email that may be pertinent to an earlier probe into Clinton's handling of classified information.
The results flip 46-45 in the Democrat's favor when combining the last seven days, Langer said.
"Either way the results are exceedingly close," he said.Last Mod: 01 Kasım 2016, 16:06
