The most recent New York Times/CBS News poll shows that Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump nationally by three points.

Clinton has 45 percent support of likely voters in the poll while Trump has 42 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has 5 percent support, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein has four percent. Clinton was up nine points in this survey just two weeks ago.

The polls shows that Trump’s supporters are still leading Clinton supporters in enthusiasm by five points. Fifty-two percent of Trump supporters say they are very enthusiastic about their candidate while only 47 percent of Clinton supporters feel the same way.

The poll was conducted with 1,333 registered voters from Oct. 28 to Nov. 1 with a margin of error plus or minus 3 points for all voters.
