WASHINGTON, Sept. 6 (UPI) — The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll for Tuesday shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 2 percentage points.

The online poll shows Clinton with 48.55 percent to Trump’s 46.5 percent.

Though he still trails, Trump made up nearly 1 percentage point compared to data collected a day earlier; Clinton dropped 0.8 percent overnight. Still, over the course of seven days, the poll’s full sample size, Clinton has improved her standing by 0.6 percent, while Trump has dropped nearly a full percentage point in the poll.

All but two days of polling data over the past week were taken after Trump’s trip to Mexico and his subsequent speech in Arizona where he renewed a hardline stance on immigration.

The UPI/CVoter online tracking poll surveys at least 200 people each day, leading to a sample size of more than 1,400 people during any seven-day span.

Because the poll is conducted online and individuals self-select to participate, a margin of error cannot be calculated. The poll has a credibility interval of 3 percentage points. This seven-day span includes data collected from Aug. 28-Sept. 4, when 1,798 individuals were surveyed. Of them, 1,237 identified themselves as likely voters.
