This week Hillary Clinton saw her average polling lead over Donald Trump dip slightly since mid-October.

Trump criticized Clinton for supporting the Affordable Care Act, after federal health officials announced premiums for mid-level health insurance plans would increase by about 25 percent on average next year. And Trump running mate Mike Pence’s plane skidded off the runway at LaGuardia Airport in New York Thursday night.
