(Worthy News) - Hillary Clinton's national lead over Donald Trump has disappeared, thanks to a huge advantage Trump has with independent voters who may have shifted after several weeks of bad news for Clinton, according to a new national poll.
In a CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday morning, Clinton leads the Republican presidential nominee by 2 points among likely voters — 45-43. That's a virtual tie in a poll with a 3.5 percentage point margin of error, and it erases Clinton's 8-point lead that she had in the same poll in early August.
Ninety-two percent of Democrats back Clinton and 90 percent of Republicans back Trump. But Trump has a big lead among independents: 49 percent say they back Trump, and just 29 percent back Clinton. [ Source ]
