Hillary Clinton leads by just one point among North Carolina voters, in the latest poll from Monmouth University, conducted after the final presidential debate.

Clinton leads over Trump, 47-46, with Libertarian Gary Johnson following at 4 percent.

Her lead has dropped slightly since Monmouth last polled the state in late August. In that poll, she led 44-42, with Johnson at 7 percent.

Democratic pollster Public Policy Polling released a poll of likely North Carolina voters earlier today, showing Clinton ahead +3 in both a head-to-head and four-way matchup.

The Monmouth University poll was conducted Oct. 20-23 among 402 likely North Carolina voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in North Carolina shows Clinton leading Trump, 48.1 to 45.4.
