Clinton still leads, but by a small three-point margin of 43 to 40 percent. Seventeen percent of voters report they don’t have an opinion.
Trump was at 37 percent in the Morning Consult poll published in the beginning of August. Clinton is down from the 46 percent she earned in that same poll.
Clinton’s favorability rating also dropped; she only has a one point lead on the Republican nominee in the race. Fifty-eight percent of likely voters rated Trump as unfavorable, compared to 57 percent who said the same of Clinton. An earlier Morning Consult poll published last week revealed that 50 percent of likely voters would never support Trump, while 45 percent of likely voters would never vote for Clinton.
Independents are also much closer than they have been in previous polls. Thirty-five percent support Clinton, and 34 percent support Trump. Thirty-one percent remain undecided in the poll.
The latest Morning Consult poll was conducted from Aug. 24-26. The poll surveyed 2,007 registered voters, and carried a margin of error of 2 percentage points in either direction.
