WASHINGTON, Oct. 27 (UPI) -- The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll for Thursday shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by roughly 3 percentage points.

The online poll shows Clinton with 49.38 percent, to Trump's 46.52 percent.

The most recent data reflect a slight uptick for Clinton and a minor shift downward for Trump compared to data collected a day earlier. However, over the course of seven days, the poll's full sample size, Trump has gained roughly a half-point on Clinton, narrowing the gap with less than two weeks to go before the election.

The UPI/CVoter online tracking poll surveys more than 200 people each day, leading to a sample size of at least 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 Oct. 19 to 25, when 1,913 individuals were surveyed. Of them, 1,349 identified themselves as likely voters.
