Clinton leads Trump by 7 pts in one poll, trails in another
Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump by seven percentage points, a latest poll has said, while another survey projected her trailing the Republican candidate by a wafer-thin one point margin.
A Suffolk University/USA Today poll of voters likely to cast ballots in the November presidential election, put Clinton 7 points above Trump nationwide. Clinton (48%) led Trump (41%), with nine per cent of respondents undecided in the two-way ballot test, a media release said.
In a four-way scenario that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Clinton maintained a seven-point advantage – 42% to Trump's 35% .
However, in the right-leaning Rasmussen polls, Clinton for the first time is seen trailing Trump, albeit by just one percentage point. Trump has 40 per cent support to Clinton's 39 percent, Rasmussen said.
