****** Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are dead even in the latest White House Watch survey.
The new national telephone and online survey shows Clinton and Trump each with 45% support among Likely U.S. Voters. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has fallen to a new low of three percent (3%), while Green Party candidate Jill Stein earns two percent (2%) of the vote.
Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and another two percent (2%) are undecided.
Clinton held a negligible 45% to 44% lead yesterday. She and Trump have been within two points or less of each other nationally all week in a survey with a +/- 2.5% margin of error.
In the latest survey, 88% of voters say they are now certain how they will vote. Trump leads 49% to 47% among these voters, with Johnson at three percent (3%) and Stein at one percent (1%). Clinton has the most to lose among voters who still could change their minds: She earns 49% in this group to Trump’s 30%, Johnson’s six percent (6%) and Stein’s 16%.
Rasmussen Reports updates its White House Watch survey daily Monday through Friday at 8:30 am Eastern based on a three-day rolling average of 1,500 Likely U.S. Voters.
The survey of 1,500 Likely Voters was conducted on October 25-27, 2016 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 2.5 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. See methodology.

Americans aren’t exactly upbeat about the economy and housing prices over the next year, but fewer expect a weaker economy in a year’s time compared to past years. Democrats are a lot more optimistic, though, than other adults are.
The economy remains the number one issue for all voters this election cycle, but Republicans are a lot more worried about national security than Democrats and unaffiliated voters are.
Clinton still leads among women, Trump among men. The Democrat has a sizable lead among those under 40, while her GOP rival remains ahead among their elders.
The older the voter, the more certain he or she is of how they will vote.
Trump appears to be growing his lead among whites, while Clinton is growing hers among blacks and other minority voters. But whites are more sure of their vote as of now than the others are.
Sixty percent (60%) of all voters think race relations have gotten worse since the election of the first black president in 2008. Just nine percent (9%) believe race relations are better now.
Speaking of President Obama, 89% of voters who Strongly Approve of the job he has done in office favor Clinton. Ninety-two percent (92%) of those who Strongly Disapprove of his job performance prefer Trump.
Ted Cruz was the first Republican hopeful to announce for the presidency 19 months ago. Clinton was the first Democrat in the race less than a month later. Seventy-one percent (71%) of all voters think the presidential campaign lasts too long.
Unlike in neighboring Utah, Republican-turned-Independent candidate Evan McMullin isn’t making much of an impact on the presidential race in Idaho.
Trump is calling for term limits on members of Congress even though his party currently controls both the House of Representatives and the Senate. Voters agree more strongly than ever with the need for congressional term limits.
