WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The US presidential race in the state of Nevada has changed course, with Republican nominee Donald Trump now leading Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, a new poll revealed on Wednesday.
"The race for Nevada's electoral votes has flipped from two months ago, with Donald Trump now holding a slim two-point lead over Hillary Clinton, whereas Clinton held a four-point lead in July," a summary accompanying the Monmouth University poll stated.
The poll had a margin of error of 4.9 percentage points.
Nevada, considered a "battleground state" in the November 8 election, has six votes in the Electoral College, which formally elects US presidents. A candidate needs at least 270 electoral votes to win the presidency.
