New Delhi:

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has taken a minor lead of two points over her Republican rival Donald Trump, according to the latest tracking poll.

The ABC News/Washington Post in its latest tracking poll yesterday said the 69-year-old former secretary of state has support of 47 per cent of likely voters as against 45 per cent for the 70-year-old real estate tycoon.

This is a significant drop from last week's tracking poll when Clinton's lead was by 12 points. Since then, Trump has gained by seven points and Clinton has slipped by three points.

The latest tracking poll was conducted a day before the FBI's announcement to reopen the investigation into the former secretary of state's alleged email scandal.

"From a 50-38 per cent Clinton lead over Donald Trump in the tracking poll's first four days, October 20-23, it's a 47-45 per cent contest in the latest results," said ABC News/ The Washington Post.

In the Real ClearPolitics average of polls, Trump is trailing behind by 4.6 percentage points.
