For the first time ever, Trump leads Hillary in average of national polls

For the first time ever, presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump has overtaken Hillary Clinton in an average of head-to-head national polls, The Hill reports.

Recent polling has shown Trump slowly gaining an advantage over the Democratic frontrunner, but in the average assessment, Trump leads Clinton by 0.2 percentage points, 43.4 percent to 43.2.

From The Hill:

An ABC News/Washington Post poll conducted May 16–19 shows a tight race between the two candidates, with Trump holding a 2-point lead over Clinton. A Rasmussen Reports poll conducted May 17–18 had the presumptive GOP nominee up 5 points over Clinton. A recent Fox News poll also showed Trump with a lead.

A RealClearPolitics average of polls has also shown Hillary’s lead over to Trump to be decreasing. Bernie Sanders has vowed to stay in the race until the primaries are over, regardless of Hillary’s sizable lead in delegates.
