Washington, D.C. -- The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll released Thursday shows Donald Trump taking a lead over Hillary Clinton by .35 percentage points.

The online poll shows Trump leading Clinton 47.19 percent to 46.84 percent. In a 24-hour period, Clinton dropped 1.26 percentage points while Trump gained 1.10 percentage points.

The UPI/CVoter online tracking poll surveys about 200 people each day, leading to a sample size of roughly 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. 31-Sept. 6, when 1,825 were surveyed. Of them, 1,262 identified themselves as likely voters.
