    US Democratic party nominee Hillary Clinton is expected to win the presidency, a new poll revealed Friday.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) – Nearly 6 in 10 likely US voters say they expect Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton to win the presidency, but her lead over Republican Donald Trump narrowed by four points, a new poll revealed Friday.

    “59 percent of likely voters polled say they expect Hillary Clinton to win the election, essentially the same as it was in early September. That includes nearly all of her own supporters and a fifth of Donald Trump’s,” the ABC News/Washington Post poll stated. “Vote preferences…show the narrowest division in the tracking poll to date, with 48 of likely voters polled for Clinton, 44 percent for Trump.”

    The same poll had found that as of early September, 57 percent of likely voters expected a Clinton victory over Trump.

    Elections for president, Congress and state and local offices across the United States are scheduled for November 8.
