Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has seen her lead over Republican Donald Trump shrink to just a five point advantage, according to the latest Marquette University Law School Poll released Wednesday afternoon.
According to the poll, Clinton led Trump by a 42-37 percent margin among registered voters and a 45-42 margin among likely voters. Clinton had a ten point lead over Trump among registered voters in a poll released by the university earlier this month, shortly after both party’s nominating conventions wrapped up.
Adding in third party candidates, Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Clinton continued to lead with 37 percent support among respondents, while Trump polled at 32 percent, Johnson and 11 percent, and Stein at seven percent.
The results of the Marquette Poll are close to those released by the Monmouth University Polling Institute Wednesday afternoon. That survey also showed Clinton with a five point lead over Trump, with a 43-38 percent margin among likely voters, while Johnson polled at seven percent and Stein was at three percent.
