Down from 5 points at the beginning of July
Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump has fallen to 3 points nationwide, according to a new poll.
Clinton leads Trump, 47 to 44 percent, in the NBC News/Survey Monkey poll released Tuesday.
Clinton has a 5-point edge over Trump, 48 to 43 percent, in the same poll last week.
Pollsters also found in the new survey that 82 percent think Clinton’s use of private email server as secretary of State was “not appropriate,” versus 15 percent who say it was.
Fifty-six percent also disagree with FBI Director James Comey’s recommendation last week that Clinton not face criminal charges, while 41 percent say he made the right call.
In addition, two-thirds say Clinton is neither honest nor trustworthy. Sixty-two percent view Trump unfavorably, however, only 2 points higher than Clinton’s 60-percent rating.
