Poll: Clinton's lead shrinks to two points; no evidence that Trump's immigration stance is hurting him

Meanwhile, the public’s views on the various immigration policies floated by both presidential candidates can best be described as schizophrenic. A solid majority favors allowing qualified illegal immigrants to remain in the country legally, for example, but almost the same percentage favors a deportation task force.

Trump trails Clinton by only 2 percentage points, 42 percent to 40 percent, in a poll taken Sept. 1 through Sept. 2. That’s little changed from a week earlier, when the GOP nominee was behind the Democratic rival by 3 points. Almost one-fifth of registered voters (18 percent) still don’t know or have no opinion, despite Election Day being roughly two months away.

Hispanic voters favor Clinton over Trump by a wide margin, 61 percent to 21 percent. But that ratio barely differs from a week earlier, when 58 percent of Latino voters put themselves in Clinton’s camp and 21 percent put themselves in Trump’s.
