Donald Trump takes a 1 point lead

A new ABCNews/Washington Post poll has Donald Trump with a 1 point lead nationally, 46-45.  From ABCNews:

Forty-six percent of likely voters support Trump in the latest results, with 45 percent for Clinton. With the data taken to a decimal for illustrative purposes, a mere 0.7 of a percentage point divides them. Third-party candidate Gary Johnson has 3 percent, a new low; Jill Stein, 2 percent.

They also noted that enthusiasm from Trump supporters is now significantly higher than Clinton supporters:

Trump now leads Clinton by 8 points in the share of voters who are very enthusiastic about their choice as of Friday. But compared with past elections, it’s low for both of them — 53 percent for Trump, 45 percent for Clinton.
Strong enthusiasm for Clinton has lost 7 points since the start of tracking, especially Friday through Sunday. This is possibly an effect of the renewed controversy over her use of a private email server while secretary of state. Trump’s strong enthusiasm has held steady in tracking, which started Oct. 20.

This election will define our generation.  Let’s hope this trend continues and Trump is elected as our next President!
