Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is closing the polling gap in Colorado, according to a new CBS News/YouGov battleground tracking poll.

Trump’s opponent Hillary Clinton leads the poll by only three points, with 42 percent of the vote. Trump is earning 39 percent, while Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earns seven points and Green Party candidate Jill Stein has two percent.

The poll included 997 likely voters with a margin of error of 4.1 percent, making Clinton’s three-point lead a statistical tie.

The poll was conducted between October 26-28, just as the news broke about the F.B.I. revisiting the investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State.

An earlier poll of the state conducted by Quinnipiac on October 10-16 showed Clinton leading by 11 points. A poll conducted by Breitbart News and Gravis on October 12-13 showed Clinton five points ahead.
