The latest poll from CNN and the Opinion Research Center shows Donald Trump leading Hillary Clinton 45 percent to 43 percent.
The poll surveyed 1,001 adults over the first weekend in September and has a margin of error or 3.5 percentage points.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein earned 7 and 2 percent, respectively.
The new data caps off a huge month for Trump, in which the real estate mogul cut Clinton’s lead — which had ballooned to seven points following the Democratic convention in July — by more than half in the Real Clear Politics average. (RELATED: Trump Leads Clinton In Latest Rasmussen Poll)

54 percent of men support Trump, compared to 32 for Clinton. The former secretary of state earned 53 percent of the female vote, compared to 38 for Trump.
