Hillary Clinton has a 6-percentage-point lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The US Democratic presidential nominee's support has ranged from 41% to 44% since late July, with Trump's support experiencing wider shifts of between 33% and 39%. 

According to the most recent poll, Clinton is favoured by about 41% of likely voters, Trump is at 35%, while 24% picked neither candidate.

A separate Reuters/Ipsos poll gave respondents the option to choose from Clinton and Trump, plus two other candidates - Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party's Jill Stein.

The results also indicated that Clinton was leading Trump by 6-percentage-points. Johnson came in third with 8-percentage-points and Stein had about 2.

Donald Trump has been causing divisions in his party this month, and has faced criticism from both sides over a fued with the parents of a Muslim American Army captain killed in Iraq.

Last week 70 Republicans wrote a letter calling for the RNC to stop helping Trump, whose actions they said were "divisive and dangerous."

America will go to the polls on November 8th to elect the 45th president of the United States.
