A new national poll shows that Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump over the last few weeks was short-lived.

According to a Fox News poll released Wednesday, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was up 44-38 percent over Trump in a head-to-head matchup.

With a few bumps in the campaign trail over the last few weeks, Trump was trailing Clinton in several areas and 51 percent of Republicans indicated they would prefer a different nominee, the Fox poll showed.

However, the latest Rasmussen poll released Thursday shows there is a change in the numbers.

“The tables have turned in this week’s White House Watch. After trailing Hillary Clinton by five points for the prior two weeks, Donald Trump has now taken a four-point lead.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey of Likely U.S. Voters finds Trump with 43% of the vote, while Clinton earns 39%. Twelve percent (12%) still like another candidate, and five percent (5%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Last week at this time, it was Clinton 44%, Trump 39%. This is Trump’s highest level of support in Rasmussen Reports’ matchups with Clinton since last October. His support has been hovering around the 40% mark since April, but it remains to be seen whether he’s just having a good week or this actually represents a real move forward among voters.”

The poll also showed that Trump earned 75 percent support among Republican voters and picked up 14 percent of the Democratic vote. Clinton had 76 percent support from her fellow Democrats while picking up 10 percent of Republicans.
