Comment: As we have repeatedly emphasized, many polls are oversampling Democrats, so in reality Trump has overturned a lead significantly greater than 12 points.

Donald Trump has wiped out Hillary Clinton’s comfortable lead, with the Democratic candidate dropping in the polls just 11 days before the election.

Clinton now leads by just two points with 47 per cent to Trump’s 45 according to the poll put together by ABC and The Washington Post.

At the start of the week, she held a comfortable advantage over her opponent with 50 to his 38.
