A new Fox News national poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has shrunk to within the margin of error — and that’s including third-party candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein:
The poll finds Clinton garners 41 percent to Trump’s 39 percent, while Libertarian Gary Johnson receives 9 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein gets 4 percent.
The third-party candidates take more from Clinton than Trump, as she holds a six-point lead in the two-way matchup: 48-42 percent. That’s at the edge of the poll’s margin of error.

Clinton had held a 10-point head-to-head advantage in the same poll earlier in August.
Clinton’s number’s aren’t just slipping nationally, either. Her lead in the crucial swing state of Pennsylvania is down to seven points in a new Franklin and Marshall College poll. The same poll had her with an 11-point lead last month. This is encouraging news for Trump, as he needs to win both Pennsylvania and Florida to have any chance at the White House.
