Clinton Holds Single-Point Lead Over Trump In North Carolina Poll

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.

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.
