Hillary Clinton edges two points behind Donald Trump in historically-red Georgia, according to a new poll from Abt-SRBI/Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Trump leads the poll, 44-42, with Libertarian Gary Johnson trailing at 9 percent among likely voters in Georgia.

Georgia has voted in favor of the Republican presidential candidate since the 1996 election.

Trump has made gains in Georgia since Abt-SRBI/AJC last polled on the presidential election in August. In that poll, Clinton led by +4 in both a head-to-head match and in a poll including third-party candidates.

The Abt-SRBI/AJC poll was conducted Oct. 17-20 among 839 likely Georgia voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.26 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in Georgia shows a tossup, with Trump leading Clinton, 44.5 to 44.2.
