Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton held rallies in key battleground states on Monday in their last appeal to voters before polls open on Tuesday morning.
The final RealClearPolitics average of recent national polls released Monday showed Clinton with a 2-point lead over Trump, slightly higher than her average support last week.
The Democratic candidate and former Secretary of State will be the first female president in US history if she is elected.
Clinton rallied in Michigan, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina on Monday with help from her most high-profile surrogate, Barack Obama. Trump, meanwhile, rallied in Florida, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Hampshire, and Michigan, calling his opponent a “phony” and predicting that he would win.
The 2016 campaign has been one of the ugliest in American history. Both Clinton and Trump have battled each other with everything they have.
