Tracking poll: Trump within 2 points of Clinton nationally
Clinton has 47 percent support to Trump’s 45 percent, according to the ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll released Saturday morning.
Clinton led the poll by 12 points as recently as last weekend. Since that time, Clinton has lost three points while Trump has gained seven points.
The poll was taken entirely before Friday’s revelation that the FBI is taking “appropriate investigative steps” after discovering more emails pertaining to its investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
Trump delighted in the agency’s announcement, while those close to Clinton expressed anger and disbelief.
The poll was conducted Oct. 24-27 among 1,148 likely voters. It has a margin of error of three points.
