Clinton has 46 percent support and Trump 45 percent, according to the survey of 9,436 adults who say they are registered to vote.

In a four-way general election scenario, Clinton has the backing of 39 percent, Trump 40 percent, Libertarian Gary Johnson 10 percent, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein 5 percent.

Half of Republicans and Republican-leaning voters think the GOP is divided now, but will unite by November. But nearly four in 10 think the party will still be divided in November.

The poll was conducted online from July 11 to July 17 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.4 percentage points.
