1. Clinton's lead over Trump narrows

Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump has narrowed to three percentage points as the Nov. 8 presidential election nears, down from nine points in mid-October and four points on Oct. 4, according to a New York Times/CBS News Poll released Thursday. Clinton, the Democratic nominee, had the backing of 45 percent of likely voters in the national poll; GOP nominee Trump had 42 percent. Respondents largely agreed on one thing: Eight in 10 said the nasty campaign had left them more repulsed than enthusiastic. Polls also shifted in key battlegrounds, with Clinton pulling nearly even with Trump in Georgia while he regained an edge in Arizona.
