Polls show Clinton, Trump tied

Clinton leads Trump 46-to-43 percent in a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, compared to a similar one in April in which Clinton had an 11-point lead.

The new poll also shows Clinton primary rival Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leading Trump by 15 percentage points, 54-to-39 percent, in a hypothetical November matchup.

“Polls this far out mean nothing,” Clinton said on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” “They certainly mean nothing to me. And I think that if people go back and look, they really mean nothing in terms of analyzing what's going to happen in the fall.”

Hillary Clinton victorious, Bernie Sanders vanquished

One Twitter user made this point — "it's only Fox so it's of no great concern" — and yes the poll was taken by Fox News, and the 45 to 42 lead is well within the margin of error so it's really a statistical tie.

However, this is a 10-point swing in Donald Trump's favour since the last Fox poll four weeks ago.
