Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump tops a new national poll that shows a tight race two months before the election.

Trump leads Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by 2 points among likely voters, 45 to 43 percent, well within the margin of error in the CNN/ORC poll released Tuesday morning.
Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson takes 7 percent while Green Party nominee Jill Stein has 2 percent.

Clinton had an 8-point lead in the same poll in early August.

The new poll of 1,001 adults, conducted between Sept. 1-4, has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
