Donald Trump holds a slight lead over Hillary Clinton — 45% to 42% — among registered voters, according to a new national Fox News poll.
The lead is within the poll’s 3-point margin of error, but could reflect growing support for the presumptive Republican nominee as the likely Democratic nominee, Clinton, remains mired in a contentious primary fight with rival Bernie Sanders.
Trump’s standing in the poll, released Wednesday, shows an improvement for the billionaire businessman from a Fox national poll in April showing Clinton on top, 48% to 41%.
Still, early national polling has painted a mixed picture — a recent CNN/ORC poll showed Clinton leading Trump by 13 points, 54%-41%.
As has been the case in most polls, Trump and Clinton face a significant gender and racial gap among their supporters.
Trump has a double-digit lead among men, while Clinton has the edge among women by double-digits, though Trump’s advantage is slightly larger among men than Clinton’s is among women. And while Trump wins white voters — including white women — by more than 20 points, Clinton enjoys even larger margins among African-American and Hispanic voters.
A majority of voters also have negative opinions of the candidates and say that both Clinton and Trump are dishonest, though Trump fares slightly better on that measure.
