    2016 US Presidential Election (161)
    0 105

    US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is closing in on Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton with just two points behind her in public support - 45 and 47 percent respectively - after the new US authorities reopened a probe into Clinton's email scandal, a poll revealed Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The survey carried out by The Washington Post newspaper jointly with the ABC broadcaster on October 29-November 1 among 1,167 US residents showed that third party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein are supported by only 3 and 2 percent of voters, respectively.

    Clinton’s lead against Trump in various polls has eroded since Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director James Comey last week announced the reopening of a probe involving emails related to Clinton’s use of a private computer server during her term as the US secretary of state.

    The FBI disclosed that it had found 650,000 emails stored on a shared laptop computer of former congressman Anthony Weiner and his estranged wife, longtime Clinton aide Huma Abedin.
