The conservative news outlet questioned 2,348 likely voters from Sept. 7 to Sept. 8. Its new poll has a margin of error of 2 percentage points.

“This is a snapshot of where the race stands just after Labor Day, the traditional beginning of the presidential race’s serious phase,” said Doug Kaplan, managing partner of Gravis Marketing, the Florida-based firm that conducted the poll.

The last Breitbart News/Gravis Marketing survey released in late August found Clinton leading Trump by 1 point, 42 percent to 41 percent. An early August edition of the poll had Clinton leading Trump by 5 points, 42 percent to 37 percent.

Monday’s results come as the race between Clinton and Trump tightens at both the state and national levels. 

Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, leads Trump, the Republican nominee, by 3 points nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.

Trump appointed Breitbart News Chairman Stephen Bannon as his campaign’s chief executive during an overhaul of his team last month.

Clinton has repeatedly linked Bannon to the hardcore conservative “alt-right” movement as a means of criticizing Trump’s ideology.
