New Quinnipiac University Poll Shows Virtual Tie Between Trump and Clinton
By CNN // June 29, 2016
(CNN) – A new Quinnipiac University poll shows Hillary Clinton leading Trump by just two points, 42% to 40%, a much closer race than other recent surveys have shown.
With third-party candidates included, Clinton leads 39% to 37%, with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson at 8% and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 4%.
This Quinnipiac poll is quite different from other recent surveys on the presidential race, showing a much tighter contest than others.
Its field period overlaps with those of the Washington Post/ABC News and NBC News /Wall Street Journal polls released Sunday, both of which found Clinton significantly ahead of Trump.
