Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump's support has surged dramatically since he emerged as his party's likely standard-bearer.

A new national poll by Reuters shows Trump at 40 percent support with likely general-election voters, compared to Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's 41 percent support.

After Trump's win in Indiana, which caused 2016 rivals Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and Ohio Gov. John Kasich to drop out of the race, Trump was trailing Clinton by 13 points in a CNN/ORC poll.

From Reuters:

The results could signal a close fight between the two likely White House rivals as Americans make up their minds ahead of the Nov. 8 election to succeed Democratic President Barack Obama. As recently as last week, Clinton led Trump by around 13 points in the poll.

Along those lines, a Quinnipiac University Swing State Poll released yesterday showed Trump and Clinton in a dead heat in key swing states.
