Hillary Clinton sits eight points ahead of Donald Trump in North Carolina following the final presidential debate, according to a new poll from Siena College/New York Times Upshot.

Clinton leads the poll of likely North Carolina voters in a head-to-head poll, 49-41, conducted in the four days following the Oct. 19 debate.

When third-party candidates are included, Clinton leads by seven points, 46-39, with Libertarian Gary Johnson following at 8 percent.

Clinton’s results have improved significantly in North Carolina since Siena/NYT Upshot last polled the state mid-September. She went from +2 in September to +8 now in a head-to-head match, and in a race including third-party candidates, the former Secretary of State went from tied with Trump in September to +7 today.

The Siena College/NYT Upshot poll was conducted Oct. 20-23 via live telephone interview among 792 likely North Carolina voters, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in North Carolina shows Clinton leading Trump, 47.6 to 44.8.
