    Among Nevada voters likely to participate in November's presidential election, 47 percent currently support US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and 40 percent back her Republican rival Trump, according to the poll.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has retaken the lead from her Republican rival Donald Trump in the traditionally Republican state of Nevada, a new Monmouth University poll revealed on Tuesday.

    "Among Nevada voters likely to participate in November's presidential election, 47 percent currently support Clinton and 40 percent back Trump," a press release about the poll stated.

    Clinton had a four point lead in the same poll in July, but Trump jumped two points ahead of her in mid-September.

    The release noted Clinton's increased support is primarily from younger, non-white voters.

    The poll had a margin of error of 4.8 percent.
