Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is leading her Republican rival Donald Trump by 3.1 percentage points in the average of polls.

According to RealClearPolitics, which keeps track of all major polls, Trump is trailing Clinton by 3.1 percentage in average of polls.

However, in the Bing average of national polls, Clinton is leading by five points.

Clinton has 82 per cent chances of winning elections, as per Bing political predictions.

Polls have been tightening after last week’s decision of the FBI to reopen its investigation into the alleged e-mail scandal.

Two of the three polls, carried out after the FBI announced its decision on October 28 to reopen its probe into her alleged e-mail scandal, showed Clinton leading Trump by three percentage points, while in another (IBD/TIPP), she is leading the real-estate mogul by just one percentage point.

As per IBD/TIPP, considered to be the most accurate poll, Clinton has the support of 45 per cent of the likely voters as against Trump’s 44 per cent.

Politico/Morning Consult said Trump (39 per cent) is trailing Clinton (42 per cent) by three percentage points, while as per Rasmussen the Republican nominee (42 per cent) is behind the former Secretary of State (39 per cent) by same difference.

Meanwhile in the battle ground State of New Hampshire, Trump is leading Clinton by two points.
