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.
