WASHINGTON, Aug. 30 (UPI) -- The UPI/CVoter daily presidential tracking poll released Tuesday shows Hillary Clinton leading Donald Trump by 3.1 percentage points.

The online poll shows Clinton with 49.87 percent to Trump's 46.78 percent.

The most recent data shows Clinton holding steady for a day at just less than 50 percent while Trump dropped 0.13 percent from a day earlier. Over the course of seven days, the poll's full sample size, Clinton has gained 1.9 percentage points while Trump has lost a half a point.

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. 22-28, when 1,652 individuals were surveyed. Of them, 1,145 identified themselves as likely voters.
