Republican nominee Donald Trump narrowed Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton’s lead in the latest ABC News/Washington Post daily tracking poll Friday.

Clinton fell from 49 percent to 48 percent, and Trump increased his 42 percent return Thursday to 44 percent Friday. Trump is up from 38 percent from Monday.

Although Trump’s support increased, 59 percent of respondents reported that they expected Clinton to win over Trump — 20 percent of Trump supporters agreed.

Ninety percent of Clinton supporters believe their vote will be counted fairly, compared to just 50 percent of Trump supporters. Seventy percent of Trump supporters think that some form of voter fraud is common, while 11 percent of Clinton supporters feel the same way.

Republicans are also rallying around the nominee. A much stronger 84 percent of Republican voters support Trump, up from Monday’s 78 percent.

Clinton carries a 5.2 percent lead over Trump in the head to head Real Clear polling average, earning 47.3 percent over Trump’s 42.1 percent.

The ABC News/Washington Post poll was conducted by Langer Research Associates, and the results reflect polling from Oct. 23 through Oct. 26. The poll surveyed 1,109 likely voters, for a margin of error of 3 percentage points in either direction.
