Hillary Clinton comes out three points ahead in a poll of North Carolina voters released on the brink of the election from Quinnipiac University.

Clinton leads Donald Trump in a head-to-head match, 48-45, among the state’s likely voters.

With third-party candidates included, the former Secretary of State’s lead narrows to two points, 47-45, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 3 percent.

Between Quinnipiac’s previous poll of North Carolina and today, Clinton’s lead in the head-to-head match moved from +2 last week to +3 today, while her lead moved from +3 last week to +2 when third-party candidates are included.

The Quinnipiac University poll was conducted Nov. 3-6 via live telephone interview among 870 likely North Carolina voters, and has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.3 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential race in North Carolina shows a tossup, with Trump leading Clinton, 46.4 to 45.5.
