Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by five points after the second presidential debate, according to a new NBC/WSJ/Marist poll.

Clinton leads the race among North Carolina voters, 48 to 43. When third party candidates are included, she retains a lead at four points, 45-41, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 9 percent.

A Suffolk University poll released earlier today, surveying North Carolina voters on the same days, showed Clinton leading Trump, 45-43, with Johnson at 5 percent.

Back in August when NBC/WSJ/Marist last polled North Carolina, Clinton led by nine points, 48-39, in a head-to-head match, and again by nine points, 45-36, with Johnson at 9 percent and Stein at 2 percent.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll was conducted Oct. 10-12 among 743 likely North Carolina voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.6 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average of the general election in North Carolina shows Clinton leading Trump, 46.2 to 42.8.
