Clinton, the Democratic nominee, registers 41 percent support among likely voters, while Trump, her GOP counterpart, claims 36 percent. Twenty-three percent said they wouldn’t vote or would pick another candidate.
 
The same poll on Tuesday showed Clinton leading by 12 points. She was up by 8 points in last Friday's Reuters/Ipsos poll.
 
The new survey tracks with recent polls, which, according to RealClearPolitics, have Clinton leading by an average of 6 points nationally.
 
The poll was conducted Aug. 22-25 and surveyed 1,154 likely voters. It has a credibility interval of 3 percentage points.

Despite some signs of her national lead dwindling, the former secretary of State leads in nearly every battleground state, and is neck and neck with Trump in traditional GOP strongholds like Georgia and Arizona.
