WASHINGTON – A new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll done after the Friday FBI announcement about Hillary Clinton emails shows Clinton is maintaining a lead over Donald Trump.

POLITICO: “Put simply, there is not yet evidence that the revelations have drastically altered the contours of the election.”

Highlights of the online poll of 1,772 conducted Saturday and Sunday:

* Clinton leads Trump 46 percent to 43 percent in a two-way race, and 42 percent to 39 percent in a four-way race, with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson at 7 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein at 5 percent.

* “39% of voters said the additional review of emails in the Clinton case had no bearing on their vote, while 33% said it made them much less likely to vote for Clinton. But most of those voters are already aligned against Clinton.”

The poll carries a margin or error of 2 percentage points.
