For the first time, Donald Trump has passed Hillary Clinton by a sliver of a margin in the weekly average of national polls, with an upper-hand of 43.4 percent to 43.2 percent, according to RealClearPolitics.

Trump pulled ahead of Clinton in last week's ABC News/Washington Post survey as well as a Fox News poll, although Clinton maintained her lead on Trump in NBC News/Wall Street Journal and CBS News/New York Times polls.
