Washington, Sept 6: Republican presidential nominee Dold Trump has a two-point edge over Hillary Clinton in the latest survey of likely voters out on Tuesday, as the Democratic nominee’s post-convention lead has largely evaporated. Trump and Clinton start the race to November 8, with the New York billioire topping Clinton 45 to 43 per cent in the new survey, with Libertarian Gary Johnson standing at seven per cent among likely voters in this poll and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at just two per cent, CNN reported. The topsy-turvy campaign for the presidency has seen both Clinton and Trump holding a significant lead at some point in the last two months, though Clinton has topped Trump more often than not. Most recently, Clinton’s convention propelled her to an eight-point lead among registered voters in an early-August CNN/ORC Poll. Clinton’s lead evaporated despite a challenging month for Trump, which saw an overhaul of his campaign staff, announcements of support for Clinton from several high-profile Republicans and criticism of his campaign strategy.
