Fox Poll: Donald Trump Gains One-Point Lead Over Hillary Clinton


Donald Trump edges Hillary Clinton by one point, 46 percent to 45 percent, in a two-way race, according to the latest Fox News poll which was released Thursday evening.

That’s a seven-point shift from Fox’s poll in late August, when Clinton was beating Trump 48 percent to 42 percent.

In a four-way race, Clinton nudges ahead 41 percent to 40 percent among likely voters. Libertarian Gary Johnson picks up 8 points, and Green party leader Jill Stein gets 3 points.

The Fox poll shows that Trump is more trusted to handle the economy and government corruption, by 51 percent to 44 percent and 51 percent to 40 percent, respectively.

The poll included 1,006 voters, including 867 likely voters. The poll was conducted by Opinion Dynamics Corp., from Sept. 11 to Sept. 14.  It has an error margin of 3 points.
