    A new poll found that Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump continues to narrow, with 48 percent to 44 percent, a decline of 2 points since last week, NBC News reported.

    The latest NBC News|SurveyMonkey poll was conducted online from Sept. 5 through Sept. 11 among 16,220 registered voters.

    About five weeks ago, just after the Democratic convention, Clinton saw a sizable 10-point lead over Trump. In several battleground states, and nationally overall, the race has tightened considerably. One notable area where Trump has made up ground is among independents who do not lean toward the Democratic or Republican Party.
