Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is maintaining his lead in the L.A. Times daily tracking poll, now sitting at an even 47 percent. His opponent Hillary Clinton has 42.4 percent.

Trump has maintained a steady lead in the poll since he passed Clinton on Sept. 13, despite going up or down a couple of points.

A Morning Consult poll released Monday shows Clinton leading by seven points nationally.

The USC Dornsife/L.A. Times Poll asks one-seventh — about 450 people — of an estimated 3,200 American citizens each day about the presidential race in order to reflect the political pulse of the country.
