The past week has been tough for Hillary Clinton, with her bout of pneumonia and the poor reception of her "basket of deplorables" comment regarding some Trump supporters.

48 percent of the respondents who identified themselves as likely voters favored Trump, compared to the 43 percent of that group who voiced support for Clinton.
