LUXEMBOURG, France—The latest poll of French voters shows Hillary Clinton’s lead in the polls shrinking to five points.
The Associated Press/NORC Center for Public Affairs Research poll on Monday shows a five-point lead for Trump.
The survey of 1,078 likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.
A CBS News poll released Tuesday found Clinton leading Trump by seven points.
Clinton’s former rival for the White House has had to make up ground on Trump in recent weeks, but has still held on to the support of a majority of voters in the latest poll.
The latest poll was conducted Aug. 5-8 and has a three-point margin of sampling error.
Trump’s favorability rating is down five points, to 46 percent.
The president is viewed negatively by 60 percent of likely voters, the lowest in the AP/NORB poll.
Clinton is viewed favorably by 59 percent.
Her favorability ratings have also declined, from 55 percent favorable in August to 46 today.
In the last AP/Reuters poll, in March, Clinton led Trump by 14 points.
In that poll, Clinton was viewed favorably, but not by a majority.
That poll also found that Trump was viewed negatively.
“Trump has lost the support he gained during the presidential campaign, and it has put him on the defensive,” said Peter Brown, a Republican strategist who has worked on Republican presidential campaigns.
“The Democrats have to take care of their own base and focus on what’s most important: the economy, jobs, foreign policy and the environment.”
The AP/CBS News poll also showed a narrowing of the divide between Trump and Clinton, with 48 percent of those polled saying they had an unfavorable view of Trump, down from 56 percent in August.
The same survey found Clinton with a slight edge among independents, 47 percent to 39 percent.
The president has been focusing on a range of policies that he says will boost the economy while lowering taxes for the wealthy. “
It’s not that Clinton has not made a mistake on this, but she’s been very weak on the economy and the deficit, which are important issues for voters.”
The president has been focusing on a range of policies that he says will boost the economy while lowering taxes for the wealthy.
In August, Trump announced that he would slash the corporate tax rate from 35 percent to 15 percent, cut the estate tax from $11 million to $5.8 million, and put a $1 trillion trust fund into the federal government to help the unemployed and those on disability.
He also signed legislation that would allow Americans to keep their existing insurance plans and make changes to the tax code.
Trump has called the tax cuts and changes to Obamacare “Obamacare Lite,” saying they would lead to the end of the Affordable Care Act.
He said the repeal of the ACA would be easier if it was implemented in stages, but would cost the government $1.6 trillion.
“Obamaballs,” he tweeted in August, referencing the names of bills that he said were being written and signed into law to replace the ACA.
The AP poll found that Clinton’s support has also dropped among Republicans.
A month ago, 45 percent of Republicans said they had a favorable view of Clinton, but now just 37 percent do, the poll shows.
In October, 54 percent of Democrats said they did, while just 33 percent now have a favorable opinion of the president.
The poll also shows Clinton with support from Democrats in the suburbs, with a 56 percent support rating, the most favorable rating among the groups polled.
A majority of Democrats who live in suburban areas say they like the way Clinton is handling the economy.
Trump, however, has seen his support among white voters, a group that has not been a strong source of support for him in the past.
His support has dropped from 58 percent support in the suburban areas in October, to 36 percent now.
Brown said he thinks that will continue to be a major problem for Trump, who is seen by white voters as not caring about them, and thus unlikely to appeal to them.
“He has a hard time appealing to them,” Brown said of Trump’s recent struggles with white voters.
“This is why he has struggled to do well with white women and Hispanics.”
In addition to the recent drop in Trump’s support among whites, Clinton has also seen a drop in her support among African-Americans, who are largely concentrated in the south.
Clinton has lost support from more than a third of African-American voters in recent months, with 45 percent saying they have an unfavorable opinion of her.
The new poll also has a slight boost for Trump among white evangelical Protestants, with 57 percent of them saying they are favorable toward him.
In July, only 43 percent of white evangelicals said they approved of Trump.
This is down from 45 percent in
