The poll shows the race is too close to call when a third-party candidate is added to the mix. Under that scenario, Clinton leads Trump 40 to 38, with Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson getting 5 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent.

Trump leads Clinton among independent voters, 40 percent to 37 percent, according to the poll.

Pollsters surveyed more than 1,500 registered voters from May 24th through 30th.  The poll has a margin of error of 2.5 percent.
