Clinton Leads By Five-Point Margin In Final Tracking Poll Update

November 8, 2016 9:38 a.m.

Hillary Clinton holds a five-point lead heading into the election in the final installment of the Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll.

Clinton takes the lead, 44-39, over Donald Trump in the head-to-head poll of likely voters nationally.

When third-party candidates are included, Clinton maintains a lead at three points, 42-39, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 6 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent.

The former Secretary of State’s lead shrank slightly from last week’s Ipsos/Reuters poll, moving from Clinton +6 to Clinton +5 in a head-to-head match, and from Clinton +8 to Clinton +3 in the third-party inclusive poll.

The Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll was conducted online from Nov. 2-6 among 2,195 likely voters nationwide, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.4 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 48.6 to 43.2.
