Rasmussen’s Oct. 28 poll update shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton level at 45 percent among likely voters, while support for the the two leading third-party candidates shrivels down to 5 percent.

According to the Rasmussen statement about the poll:

Clinton held a negligible 45% to 44% lead yesterday. She and Trump have been within two points or less of each other nationally all week

In the latest survey, 88% of voters say they are now certain how they will vote. Trump leads 49% to 47% among these voters, with Johnson at three percent (3%) and Stein at one percent (1%). Clinton has the most to lose among voters who still could change their minds: She earns 49% in this group to Trump’s 30%, Johnson’s six percent (6%) and Stein’s 16%.

According to a Rasmussen statement, “The economy remains the number one issue for all voters this election cycle … Clinton still leads among women, Trump among men. The Democrat has a sizable lead among those under 40, while her GOP rival remains ahead among their elders. The older the voter, the more certain he or she is of how they will vote. Trump appears to be growing his lead among whites, while Clinton is growing hers among blacks and other minority voters. But whites are more sure of their vote as of now than the others are.”

The survey of 1,500 likely voters was conducted from Oct. 25 to Oct. 27. The margin of error for each number is plus or minus 2.5 percentage points. The polling for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC.
