Trump, Clinton in the Home Stretch

Trump's funds, by comparison, stands at $68million - meaning Clinton is better equipped to keep her political operation at full strength in the final frantic days before the election. Among Trump supporters, 49% took that view.

For the first time, Michelle Obama joined Hillary Clinton on the campaign trail in Winston-Salem, N.C. The two women electrified supporters at the rally, giving a new injection of energy into the campaign with almost one week left before the election.

Earlier this month, Trump derisively dismissed a reporter as "a sleazebag" for asking a question about women who have accused Trump of sexual assault.

Today's main takeaway from the polls is that Donald Trump, the Republican nominee for president, is slowly closing in on Hillary Clinton, the Democratic nominee.

On Wednesday night, FiveThirtyEight 's Nate Silver wrote that Trump has "probably narrowed his deficit against Clinton", but by too little to see any major shift. As of October 19, according to reports filed with the FEC on Thursday evening, the Trump campaign had just under $16 million cash on hand.

"Early voting is underway so make sure, get out and vote, we don't want to give this away", Trump said, trashing Clinton as "a big liar".

Trump's comments came amid a day of campaigning in the critical battleground state of OH, where he leads recent polls by an average of 1.1 percentage points, according to RealClearPolitics.

Clinton maintains a staff of more than 800, and has spent more on advertising than Trump has every single week of the race. And Trump himself has contributed just over half the $100 million he pledged to help bankroll his own campaign. First lady Michelle Obama campaigned with Clinton in North Carolina. Meanwhile, 46 percent of voters in a YouGov poll published Thursday said they intend to vote for Clinton, while 41 percent said they will cast their vote for Trump. The Huffington Post's national average of polls finds Clinton with a seven-point advantage over Trump, hardly changed in recent weeks. The poll has a margin of error of 3 percent.
