New Poll Gives Trump Slight Bump Over Clinton Following Latest Email Inquiry
A new poll says Donald Trump has taken a slight lead over Hillary Clinton for the first time.
In the latest ABC News / Washington Post poll, Trump is at 46 percent with Clinton close behind at 45 percent. The poll was taken after the stunning email revelation.
In a newly-released NBC News/SurveyMonkey poll, Clinton maintains a six-point lead over Trump — 47 to 41 percent.
Tuesday’s New York Post headline screamed "Premature Elation," reporting that the Clinton campaign is planning a huge fireworks display on the Hudson River near the Javits Center on Election Night — assuming she wins.
Trump also finds himself at the center of controversy. A new report from Slate.com alleges that the GOP presidential candidate had a server with ties to Russian banks.
The Trump campaign has denounced the article and according to the New York Times the FBI has: “ultimately concluded that there could be an innocuous explanation, like a marketing email or spam, for the computer contacts.”
After the news broke Monday night, Clinton took to Twitter to raise alarm about the Slate articles recent findings.
