Higher-income voters are narrowly supporting Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in another sign of how the 2016 presidential race is fracturing traditional voting blocs. In a two-way contest, Clinton beats Republican Donald Trump 46 percent to 42 percent among likely voters with annual household incomes of $100,000 or more, the latest Purple Slice online poll for Bloomberg Politics shows.Trump is viewed favorably by 36 percent, while 42 percent view Clinton favorably.Higher-income voters give Clinton the overwhelming edge, 57 percent to 18 percent, on which candidate has been more transparent about sharing personal tax and health records with the public.When third-party candidates are included, the race is similarly tight among top earners, with Clinton at 41 percent and Trump at 37 percent.That's a better score than Clinton or Trump, and equal to former President Bill Clinton.
