Poll: Clinton Leads Trump Unharmed By FBI News

PollClinton Leads Trump Unharmed By FBI NewsFollowing FBI Director James Comeyโ€™s bombshell news Friday about new emails that could pertain to the investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clintonโ€™s private server, the presidential race hasnโ€™t been dramatically changed, according to a new poll. The weekend Politico/Morning Consult poll suggests Clinton still maintains a 3 percentage-point lead over Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. The poll shows a 46 percent to 43 percent two-way split and a 42 percent to 39 percent breakdown in a four-way race. In the latter, Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson measures at 7 percent and Green Party nominee Jill Stein comes in at 5 percent. The pollโ€™s margin of error is within 2 percentage points. Before Fridayโ€™s news, Clinton was leading by the same amount in a four-way breakdown (3 points) and by 5 points in the two-way split. This weekendโ€™s online poll measured 1,772 likely voters Saturday and Sunday, beginning one full day after Comeyโ€™s letter to the Senate announced the potential new evidence.
