Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump are both tied in the latest national poll, erasing Clinton's prior lead. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson is at 8 percent. (more)





The poll, by CBS News and the New York Times, showed that Clinton and Trump are both tied at 41 percent among likely voters. Johnson, who is the first third-party candidate in 20 years to be on the ballot nationwide, is at 8 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein is at 4 percent.

The poll showed that Clinton leads among registered voters overall, but her chances are diminished by a lack of voter enthusiasm. Only 36 percent of Clinton supporters are "very enthusiastic" about voting, compared to 45 percent among Trump supporters.

Clinton led national polls since the end of the Democratic National Convention in late July and in some polls her lead was in the double digits, but Trump's support has increased over the past few weeks, while Clinton's support has dropped slightly but remains steady overall.

According to the national poll average by RealClearPolitics, Clinton currently leads with roughly 42.0 percent, compared to 40.9 percent for Trump. Johnson has dropped slightly to 8.3 percent while Stein has fallen to 2.7 percent.
