Donald Trump is gaining ground on Hillary Clinton, according to a new poll.

A Fox News national poll released Wednesday showed Clinton at 44 percent and Trump right behind with 41 percent in a four-way race.
A week earlier, the same poll gave Clinton a much larger lead — 45 to 39 percent.
“To be competitive, Trump needs to consolidate support among Republicans and carry independents,” said Republican pollster Daron Shaw. “That’s where he’s made inroads in the last week, mostly by focusing his attention on the economy and ObamaCare.”
Shaw conducted the Fox News poll with Democratic counterpart Chris Anderson.
Trump’s strength was the economy.
The poll found he was more trusted than Clinton to handle economic matters by four percentage points — the only issue where he beat his rival. Clinton was ahead on foreign policy, immigration and terrorism.
“The bottom hasn’t fallen out for Trump and Clinton hasn’t pulled away, but the race isn’t as close as the 3-point lead suggests,” said Anderson.
“Trump needs a solid majority of undecided voters and wavering supporters of third-party candidates, and that’s extremely unlikely since most of them think he lacks the judgment, temperament, and qualifications to be president.”
