Rasmussen poll: Trump leads Clinton nationally
Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, has 40 percent support to Clinton's 39 percent, according to a poll by the right-leaning Rasmussen Reports released Thursday.
Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson got 7 percent, and Green Party nominee Jill Steins got 3 percent.
Last week's edition of the same poll showed Clinton, the Democratic nominee, ahead by 4 points, 42 percent to 38 percent.
Clinton's support is down 5 points from a high of 44 percent in the Rasmussen poll taken in early August, shortly after the Democratic National Convention.
