A new poll showed presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton with a 5-point lead over Republican rival Donald Trump in a head-to-head match-up, but the presidential race was a statistic dead heat when third-party candidates were included as will be the case in November.
Mrs. Clinton topped Mr. Trump 46 percent to 41 percent in a two-way race, according to the NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Sunday.
The race tightened considerably when Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein were added. Mrs. Clinton barely edged out Mr. Trump 39 percent to 38 percent, within the survey’s margin of error.
