Presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump trails Democrat Hillary Clinton by only three points nationally, 48% to 45%, according to a new NBC News-Survey Monkey online poll, compared to a five-point lead only a week ago.
Trump leads with independents 44% to 36%.
According to the poll, Clinton leads Trump with black voters, Hispanics, women and those with a college degree. Trump wins with white voters, men and those with a high school degree or less.
Very conservative Republican registered voters (RVs) say they favor Trump to lead the party over House Speaker Paul Ryan 63% to 34%.
The survey was an online weekly election tracking poll May 9-15 of 14,100 adults with a margin of error of plus or minus 1.1 percentage points for the entire survey and 2.3 points for the Republicans RVs.
