It’s a Fox News Poll, so naturally it would lean towards a Republican angle, but the poll still follows a bigger trend, and that is Trump is closing the gap on Clinton.

The Fox News Poll also “finds majorities of voters feel both frontrunners lack strong moral values and will say anything to get elected.”

Here is a breakdown of the numbers:

  • Trump has a 45%-42% edge over Clinton…if the election were held today.
  • Last month (April 2016) Clinton was leading by 48%-41%.
  • Bernie Sanders leads Trump 46% to 42%, according to the same poll.
  • Trump enjoys big support among whites, leading Clinton 55% to 31% percent.
  • The margin grows among whites without a college degree, 61% for Trump and just 24% for Clinton.
  • Women voters back Clinton with 50% and just 36% support Trump.
  • Clinton leads Trump among black voters (90% to 7%) and Hispanics (62% to 23%).

The Fox News Poll surveyed 1,021 registered voters from May 14-17. The poll has a margin of error of 3 points.
