Poll: Trump leads Clinton by 2 in Nevada
Republican Donald Trump leads Democrat Hillary Clinton in the presidential contest in Nevada, but the race is still very close according to a new Monmouth University poll released Wednesday.
Trump leads Clinton 44 percent to 42 percent, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson took eight percent. Trump and Clinton are within the margin of error of 4.9 percent.
The poll falls in line with others in the past few weeks that show the race in Nevada is very close. It is the first to show Trump ahead in a three-way race since a KTNV/Rasmussen poll in late July.
Both Trump and Clinton had similar unfavorable ratings, with Trump at 55 percent and Clinton at 54 percent. Clinton did edge out Trump in terms of favorable opinions at 34 percent to Trump’s 30 percent. – READ MORE
