Republican nominee Donald Trump virtually tied Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the latest New York Times/CBS News poll published Thursday.

Clinton officially leads by two points in the poll, well within the margin of error. Trump earned 44 percent of the vote compared to Clinton’s 46 percent among likely voters.

Clinton gained more among registered voters, earning 46 to Trump’s 41 percent.

The four-way race that includes Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green nominee Jill Stein narrows the two major party nominees to an actual tie. Both Clinton and Trump earned 42 percent of the vote. Johnson fell slightly to 8 percent, and Stein earned her usual 4 percent of the vote.

Clinton led among white women, non-white voters, as well as younger voters. Trump’s strongest demographic continues to be non-educated white voters.

Clinton also lost significant ground in the latest Google Analytics poll in the District of Columbia Thursday, as well as the key swing state of Ohio on Tuesday, losing a 7-point lead and ceded an additional 5 points as Trump took the lead.

The Times poll reached 1,433 registered voters, and carried a margin of error of 3 percentage points in either direction.
