    Republican Donald Trump (L) and Democrat Hillary Clinton. A new poll suggests that the renewed interest in Clinton's email controversy has led to a narrowing in poll numbers between her and Donald Trump.

    Hillary Clinton's lead over Donald Trump narrowed to 3 points this week following FBI Director James Comey's recommendation that no criminal charges be brought against the former secretary of state over her use of a private email server, according to the latest from the NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll conducted online from July 4 through July 10, 2016.

    Comey's critical statement on Clinton's handling of the matter was not positive. Her lead over Trump has deteriorated in the past couple weeks since her lead peaked two weeks ago.

    Eighty-two percent of voters agreed that it was inappropriate for Clinton to use a personal email server during her tenure as secretary of state while 56 percent of voters also said they disagreed with Comey's recommendation that Clinton not be prosecuted.
