    With just four days ahead of Election Day, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump leads his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton by five percent, a new Los Angeles Times/USC poll said Friday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The survey carried out among 2,094 US residents showed that 47.5 percent would vote for Trump and 42.5 for Clinton.

    Los Angeles Times is based in California which is traditionally a strongly Democratic state.

    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 into 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.

    The 2016 presidential election is set for November 8.
