Hillary looks like she’s ready for bed.

Hillary Clinton sank to 39{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} support with likely voters in the latest Rasmussen poll.
This was her lowest mark since early August.
Rasmussen reported:

Hillary Clinton’s post-convention lead has disappeared, putting her behind Donald Trump for the first time nationally since mid-July.

The latest weekly Rasmussen Reports White House Watch shows Trump with 40{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} support to Clinton’s 39{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} among Likely U.S. Voters, after Clinton led 42{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} to 38{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} a week ago. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson now earns seven percent (7{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) of the vote, down from nine percent (9{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) the previous two weeks, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein picks up three percent (3{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) support. Three percent (3{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) like some other candidate, and seven percent (7{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) are undecided.

Clinton’s support has been trending down from a high of 44{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} in early August just after the Democratic National Convention. This is her lowest level of support since mid-July. Trump’s support has been eroding, too, from his high of 44{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} at that time. A one-point lead is statistically insignificant in a survey with a +/- 3 percentage point of margin of error. It highlights, however, that this remains a very close race.

Both major candidates have lost some support this week from voters in their respective parties. Trump now has the backing of 71{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} of Republicans, down from 76{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} a week ago. Clinton has 73{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} of the Democratic vote, down from 79{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} in the previous survey.
