Will Hillary get Trumped?

A new poll from CNN/ORC Polling reveals that billionaire Donald Trump is trailing Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton by only six points in the general election.

The poll, conducted by CNN and the market research agency from Aug. 13-16, found that Trump has gained on the 67-year-old significantly since July.

The real estate tycoon, 69, previously trailed Clinton by 16 points in the same July survey.

Regardless of his advance, the poll still has Clinton winning the overall White House race.

Trailing behind her and Trump are three other Republican contenders. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is also down from the former secretary of state by just six points, while former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush trails by nine and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina by 10.

The poll found Clinton’s biggest lead to be over Fiorina, by 53% to 43% support among registered voters.

Trump has ruffled a few feathers since announcing his presidential run earlier this summer.

Most recently, the star has been tangling with Fox News’ Megyn Kelly in the weeks following the Aug. 6 GOP candidates’ debate.

Trump raged that Kelly was unfair to him during the debate and subsequently attacked her on Twitter.
