Democrat Hillary Clinton maintains her slim lead over Republican Donald Trump with just days remaining in the presidential campaign. In a recent Franklin Pierce University/Boston Herald nationwide poll, Clinton leads Trump 48-to-44 percent (due to rounding) among likely voters, compared to 46-to- 41 percent in mid-October. (The actual difference between Clinton’s 47.6 percent is closer to Trump’s 44.4 percent). Clinton’s support has inched up 2-points, and Trump’s 3-points.

The FBI’s recent decision to review new e-mails that went through Clinton’s server appears to be having a modest impact on the vote choice of self-identified political Democrats and Independents.

These results are based on a recent Franklin Pierce University / Boston Herald Poll conducted by RKM Research, November 1 – 5, 2016. The survey is based on responses from 1,009 randomly selected likely voters. Interviews were conducted by landline and cellular telephone. The maximum sampling margin of error is +/- 3.1 percent.
