WASHINGTON Oct. 28 (UPI) -- The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll for Friday shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by less than 2 percentage points.

The online poll shows Clinton with 48.84 percent to Trump's 46.95 percent.

The most recent data reflect a shift of almost a full percentage point toward Trump compared to data collected a day earlier. As Trump moves further away from the scandal over a video tape speaking crudely about women, the poll has shown the race tightening. Over the past week, Clinton has lost 1.43 points, while Trump has gained 1.38 points, with "others" -- respondents who declined to pick either candidate -- remaining roughly the same.

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 Oct. 20 to 26, when 1,926 individuals were surveyed. Of them, 1,363 identified themselves as likely voters.
