Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are locked in a tie in a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll of New Hampshire voters, showing a tightening in the swing state.

This latest poll, plus two earlier polls showing Trump ahead in New Hampshire, have pushed the presidential race in the Granite State, which previously leaned toward Clinton, into a close tossup on TPM’s Electoral Scoreboard.

The two candidates are tied at 42 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson trailing at 5 percent, Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent, and American Delta Party candidate Rocky De La Fuente polling at less than one percent.

Trump has closed into the former Secretary of State since Suffolk University/Boston Globe previously polled New Hampshire voters in early October, when Clinton polled two points ahead, 44-42.

Two other New Hampshire polls released today, from MassINC/WBUR and American Research Group, showed the businessman ahead in a head-to-head race, by two points and five points respectively.

The Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll surveyed 500 likely New Hampshire voters via live telephone interview from Oct. 31-Nov. 2, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in New Hampshire shows a tossup, with Clinton leading Trump, 43.9 to 43.
