Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump leads Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by 2 percentage points in a hypothetical general election match-up, according to a new poll.
The Washington Post-ABC News poll released Sunday shows Mr. Trump with 46 percent support among registered voters, compared to Mrs. Clinton’s 44 percent support, which falls within the survey’s 3.5-point margin of error.
The narrow lead for Mr. Trump is a dramatic turnaround from the poll’s last iteration in March, which, prior to Mr. Trump locking up the Republican nominating contest, found Mrs. Clinton besting the businessman by 9 percentage points.
The latest poll finds that both candidates are exceedingly unpopular, with Mr. Trump posting a minus-16 favorability rating and Mrs. Clinton a minus-17 score. Nearly six in ten voters view both candidates unfavorably.
