DENVER -- Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied in Colorado, according to a new poll released just days away before the Nov. 8 General Election.  

The poll from the University of Denver's Crossley Center for Public Opinion Research showed Clinton and Trump deadlocked at 39 percent in a four-way race. 

When it came to either Clinton or Trump, pollsters found Clinton led Trump by only one point, 42 percent to 41 percent, respectively. 

The survey of registered likely voters was conducted Saturday through Monday. 

Floyd Ciruli, a veteran Colorado pollster who conducted the survey, told the Denver Post the numbers are “reflective of the fact that this environment has turned negative for Clinton" after the FBI inquiry regarding emails with possible ties to Clinton's email server while she served as secretary of state. 

For those who already cast their ballot, Clinton has a comfortable lead over Trump, with 45 percent to Trump's 38 percent. The numbers seem to support current figures in early voting which show registered Democrats leading registered Republican by about 23,000 ballots. 

However, the numbers switch when it comes to those who have not voted -- which gives Republicans hope that its voters will close the gap in the final days, the Denver Post reports.
