Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is now polling ahead of Hillary Clinton, according to a new CNN poll released this morning.
Trump is now leading with 45 percent of the vote while Clinton is now at 43 percent. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has seven percent while Green Party candidate Jill Stein has two percent.
Part of Trump’s success lies in a 20 point lead among independents. Forty-nine percent of independents now support Trump while only 29 percent support Clinton.
