According to the latest CNN/ORC polling, Donald Trump’s lead in the Republican Party presidential race has boosted him to be within 6 points of Hillary Clinton.
He trailed Clinton by 16 points in a July poll, and narrowed that gap by boosting his standing among Republicans and Republican-leaning independents (from 67% support in July to 79% now), men (from 46% in July to 53% now) and white voters (from 50% to 55%).
But Clinton still holds the cards overall in the race for the White House, leading four Republican contenders: She tops Trump and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker by 6 points each among registered voters, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush by 9 points, and businesswoman Carly Fiorina by 10 points.
The race in the Democratic primary has tightened also with Bernie Sanders notching 29% to Hillary’s 47%.
Vice-president Joe Biden received 14% support.
