Republican nominee Donald Trump is leading over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by two points, according to the Investor’s Business Daily (IBD) national poll published Monday.

Trump’s reversal is due primarily to his increasing support from women voters. Clinton still leads among women 43 percent, but Trump overcame a double-digit deficit in the poll, and is only trailing 3 points behind the Democratic nominee.

Clinton lost one point, bring her down to 42 percent in Sunday’s poll, while Trump remained stable at 43 percent in the daily tracking poll. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson earned 6 percent of the vote, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein rounded out the pack with 2 percent.

Trump earned the largest lead in the IBD daily tracking poll in 20 days, according to Investor’s Business Daily.

Clinton currently has the lead in the Real Clear four way race polling average. Clinton is 2.4 percentage points ahead of Trump, earning 44.6 percent compared to the Republican nominee’s 42.2 percent.

The poll included 1,026 likely voters, and ran from Nov. 3 through Nov. 6. The poll carried a margin of error of 3.1 percent in either direction.
