    Presumptive Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has just a one point lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump in the US general election, a Morning Consult poll revealed.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Last week the same poll showed Clinton with a five point lead, 44-39 percent.

    "According to the national survey, the presumptive Democratic nominee tops Trump, 41 percent to 40 percent, but her lead is within the poll’s margin of error of 2 percentage points," a press release about the poll results stated on Tuesday.

    The release noted that the results are Trump’s best showing so far in a head-to-head matchup with Clinton.
