Donald Trump has rebounded from a healthy deficit to take a 2-point national lead over Hillary Clinton in the latest CNN/ORC poll.

The results:

  • Trump: 45 percent;
  • Clinton: 43 percent;
  • Libertarian Gary Johnson: 7 percent;
  • Green Party's Jill Stein: 2 percent.

Clinton led Trump by 8 points in the CNN/ORC in early August, a post-Democratic convention bounce for Clinton.

Despite Trump's lead, most voters surveyed believe Clinton will win — 59 percent. Just 34 percent think Trump will win the election, according to CNN.

Other key results from the CNN/ORC poll:

  • Trump leads among independents, 49 percent to 29 percent for Clinton; 16 percent back the Libertarian candidate Johnson
  • Clinton leads with women, 53 percent to 38 percent;
  • Trump leads with men, 54 percent to 32 percent for Clinton;
  • Clinton leads with voters 45 and under, 54 percent to 29 percent;
  • Trump leads with voters 45 and older, 54 percent to 39 percent.

Of the top four issues for voters surveyed, Trump is more trusted on two of them:

  • Economy: 56 percent trust Trump more than Clinton (41 percent);
  • Terrorism: 51 percent trust Trump more than Clinton (45 percent);
  • Foreign policy: Clinton more trusted, 56 percent to 40 percent;
  • Immigration: 49 percent favor Clinton's policy to 47 percent for Trump.

Voters see Trump as the more trustworthy and honest candidate, 50 percent to 35 percent for Clinton.

The CNN/ORC Poll was conducted Sept. 1-4 among a random national sample of 1,001 adults. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
