The Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, is holding a modest lead over Republican Donald Trump in the latest Washington Post-ABC Tracking Poll released on Sunday.

In a Post-ABC poll released two days before, Clinton had led Trump by 47 per cent to 44 per cent.

The poll said that Clinton had an advantage in affirmative support, with 55 per cent of backers saying they are mainly supporting her, compared with 43 per cent of Trump voters.

As early voting winds down, a spike in Latino turnout across the country appears to be giving Clinton an edge in battleground states.

The final polls are trickling in and Clinton is retaining a modest lead nationally.

Similarly, 44 per cent of likely voters’ support Clinton and 40 per cent back Trump, according to a new NBC News/WSJ national poll released on Sunday.

Clinton holds big leads with women and minority voters, while men, white voters and senior citizens buttress Trump’s support.

The Democratic candidate is also doing better with those who have already cast their ballots, but the Republican candidate holds a lead among voters who plan to do so on Election Day.

Americans will vote for a new president on Tuesday, but about 37 million voters have already chosen who they want to rule the country in early voting.

The new poll came alongside a brief moment of drama in the final days of campaigning.
