Hillary Clinton's lead has entirely vanished since Friday, with the race now deadlocked at 44% to 44%, according to the latest IBD/TIPP presidential tracking poll.An important poll.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson's support held steady 4%, as did Green Party candidate Jill Stein's at 2%.
When asked to choose only between Trump and Clinton, voters are also equally divided, with both candidates now at 44%.
The unrounded data show Trump with a slight lead in both the four-way and two-way matchups. In the four-way race, Trump gets 44.4%, Hillary 44.0%, Johnson 4.1%. and Stein 2.2%. In the two-way poll, Trump is at 44.2% to Clinton's 44.0%.
The poll of 862 likely voters nationwide has a margin of error of +/- 3.4 percentage points. On a weighted basis, the poll included 335 Democrats, 292 Republicans and 233 Independents. The results are based on a rolling average of 5 days' worth of polling, and so they now fully reflect the aftermath of the FBI's bombshell announcement on Friday that it was examining thousands of new emails "pertinent" to the Clinton email scandal.
