Ipsos/Reuters Tracking Poll: Candidates Tied Among Likely Voters Nationally

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are tied at 39 percent among likely voters in the latest release of the Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll.

With third party candidates included, Trump leads the poll by two points, 39-37, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 7 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

Clinton had a slight advantage in the head-to-head race in last week’s Ipsos/Reuters release, leading 40-39. The candidates were tied at 39 percent in the four-way race, with Johnson at 8 percent and Stein stuck at 2 percent.

This marks the first time Trump has come out ahead in either the head-to-head or four-way race in the Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll.

The Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll was conducted Sept. 15-19 among 1,111 likely voters nationwide, and has a credibility interval of plus or minus 3.4 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 44.5 to 42.4.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
