Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is now leading Democrat Hillary Clinton nationally, according to the latest ABC News/Washington Post tracking poll.

The survey, released Tuesday, found that Trump is leading Clinton by a single point nationally, 46 percent to 45 percent. In the four-way race, Libertarian Gary Johnson registered three points and the Green Party’s Jill Stein received two points.

The poll also found that Trump’s supporters are more enthusiastic about their candidate than Clinton’s supporters, 53 percent to 45 percent.

With just one week to go until Election Day, momentum is clearly on the side of Trump. Ten days ago, the same ABC/Washington Post poll found that Clinton had a double-digit lead over Trump. Then, over the weekend, the poll found that the race had tightened further.

According to the latest RealClearPolitics national polling average, the race is indeed becoming very close. In mid-October, Clinton led Trump by an average of nearly seven points. But now, that lead is just 2.2 points.

And with Clinton now under investigation again by the FBI for her use of a private email server while secretary of state, the race is sure to continue tightening until the polls close next Tuesday.

The ABC News/Washington Post surveyed 1,128 likely voters between Oct. 27-30. It has a margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
