This is impressive seeing that the mainstream media has barely covered either the Green Party or Libertarian Party candidates so far.
This more recent poll also included Bernie Sanders who received an impressive 40% of the preference votes.
Now back to the main news story…[/symple_box]
The poll found Clinton was ahead 49 percent to 42 percent. The week prior the former secretary of state led Trump 48 percent to 44 percent.
Clinton also led in the poll when the race was expanded to a four-way competition that included Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein. Clinton earned 42 percent support, Trump 38 percent, Johnson 9 percent and Stein 5 percent.
