Donald Trump has nearly pulled even with Hillary Clinton, according to the results of the NBC News/SurveyMonkey weekly tracking poll released Tuesday.
While Clinton is looking to wrap up the Democratic nomination with a strong performance in the final group of states on June 7, her advantage in a hypothetical matchup against the Republican nominee has dwindled by the week. Over the last seven days, Clinton led Trump 47 percent to 45 percent, with the Manhattan businessman drawing 2 points closer since the last weekly survey.
Meanwhile, Bernie Sanders maintained a 12-point lead over Trump in a hypothetical head-to-head general election contest, 52 percent to 40 percent.
The poll was conducted May 23-29, surveying 12,969 registered voters online with a margin of plus or minus 1.2 percentage points.
