Another Poll has BAD NEWS for Hillary Clinton!

For the first time since mid-July, Hillary Clinton’s support has dropped below Trump’s in Rasmussen’s weekly national presidential polls. She now sits at 39 percent, one point below Trump who garnered 40 percent of support from survey respondents.

Rasmussen asked 1,000 likely voters the following question: “If the 2016 presidential election were held today, would you vote for Republican Donald Trump, Democrat Hillary Clinton, Libertarian Gary Johnson or Green Party candidate Jill Stein?”

Donald Trump came out on top with 40 percent. Hillary Clinton garnered 39 percent, Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson received 7 percent, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein was last with 3 percent support from participants.

Rasmussen adds that while both major party candidates have lost some support, the survey results show that this is going to be a close race:

Trending: Science is Settled

Clinton’s support has been trending down from a high of 44% in early August just after the Democratic National Convention. This is her lowest level of support since mid-July. Trump’s support has been eroding, too, from his high of 44% at that time. A one-point lead is statistically insignificant in a survey with a +/- 3 percentage point of margin of error. It highlights, however, that this remains a very close race.

Both major candidates have lost some support this week from voters in their respective parties. Trump now has the backing of 71% of Republicans, down from 76% a week ago. Clinton has 73% of the Democratic vote, down from 79% in the previous survey. Trump attracts 15% of Democrats, while 12% of Republicans prefer Clinton. The GOP nominee continues to hold a small lead among voters not affiliated with either major political party, this week leading 36% to 28%.

Johnson draws support from eight percent (8%) of Republicans, three percent (3%) of Democrats and 12% of unaffiliated voters. Stein earns six percent (6%) of the vote among unaffiliateds.

In addition, Rasmussen found that 3 percent prefer another candidate not listed in the survey question, and 7 percent remain undecided.
