Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump decreased in the NBC News/Survey Monkey weekly tracking poll for the second week in a row, according to the poll released Tuesday morning.

Clinton now leads Trump by three points, 47-44, down from a five point lead over Trump in last week’s tracking poll.

Clinton’s drop in the poll coincides with the FBI’s release of its findings from the probe into the former secretary of state’s email use. The tracking poll found that 82 percent of voters thought it was inappropriate for Clinton to use the private server and 56 disagreed with the FBI’s recommendation not to prosecute Clinton.

NBC News/Survey Monkey surveyed 7,869 adults who say they are registered voters online July 4-10 with a margin of error plus or minus 1.4 percentage points.
