    Despite Hillary Clinton still holding the two-point advantage, Donald Trump has been able to gain some ground over her recent health problems, a poll conducted for ABC News and Washington Post showed Sunday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — According to the poll, 53 percent of likely voters think that Hillary Clinton is in a sufficiently good health to govern the country, while 75 percent believe the same about Trump.

    The survey participants considered Clinton better acquainted with world affairs, with 68 percent against 42 for Trump, and 10-point more "honest and trustworthy", the poll results showed.

    The poll also indicated that Trump is leading strongly among white men without college degree, with 76 percent against Clinton's 17, whereas Clinton has a 25-point advantage among college-educated white women.
