Trump beats Clinton by 3 points in new poll [View all]

Source: The Hill

Donald Trump edges out Hillary Clinton by 3 percentage points in a hypothetical general election match-up, according to a new Fox News poll.

Trump has 45 percent support, while Clinton trails with 42, putting just within the poll's margin of error.

Clinton rival Bernie Sanders, meanwhile, leads Trump 46 to 42, according to the same poll.

The presumptive GOP nominee is buoyed by his support among whites, leading Clinton 55 to 31 percent. That margin grows among whites without a college degree, 61 percent of whom favor Trump, while just 24 percent back Clinton.
