Clinton’s lead over Trump narrows in latest US poll


WASHINGTON: Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has narrowed since he became the apparent winner of the Republican presidential nomination, according to a national poll out on Friday. The CBS News/New York Times survey found that 47 percent of registered voters would support Clinton, while 41 percent back Trump. The same survey gave better odds to Bernie Sanders—Clinton’s rival for the Democratic presidential nod—showing him leading Trump 51 percent to 38 percent. Last month, the former US secretary of State, in a CBS News poll, led Trump by 10 points. The phone survey of 1,300 adults had a margin of error of plus-or-minus three percentage points, the Times said.
