According to the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll released Sunday, Donald Trump is now only trailing one point behind Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton. In the new poll, Clinton leads Trump by just a single point, 46 percent to 45 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson and Jill Stein of the Green Party are polling at four and two percent.
Clinton had a 12 point lead over Trump in the same poll last weekend, at 50 percent to 38 percent. The possible shift to Trump’s advantage most likely attributes to FBI Director James Comey announcing on Friday that the bureau was re-opening their criminal probe against Clinton. The second investigation was propelled after potential new evidence was discovered from a different investigation against former Congressman Anthony Weiner, perverted husband of Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
Regardless, Clinton believes these revelations won’t make a difference. According to poll numbers she is wrong: 63 percent polled said the news didn’t make any difference to them to switch their vote. However, 34 percent did say the news would compel them to not vote for Clinton.
