Donald Trump is closing in on Hillary Clinton in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, which shows Republicans lining up behind their bombastic candidate.
The presumptive Republican presidential nominee is in a statistical dead heat with his likely Democratic opponent among the registered voters polled — 46 percent for Trump, 44 percent for Clinton. That falls within the poll's 3.5-point margin of error, meaning that the race is technically too close to call at this point.
But Twitter isn't exactly a place for nuance. Thousands of people have been tweeting: "Trump 46%," which was among the day's trending topics.
