Clinton Leads By Six Points In National Poll

September 23, 2016 9:49 a.m.

Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by a six-point margin, 50-44, in the latest Associated Press/GfK poll of likely voters nationwide.

With third-party candidates included, her lead remains at six points, 45-39, with Libertarian Gary Johnson behind at 9 percent and Green Party Jill Stein netting 2 percent among likely voters.

When AP/GfK last polled the general election race in July, the pollster only screened registered voters without a likely voter subgroup. In that poll, she led, 40-36, with Johnson at 6 percent and Stein at 2 percent.

The AP/GfK poll was conducted online on Sept. 15-19, among 1,251 likely voters. The poll did not specify margin of error for the likely voter subset.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 44.5 to 41.7.
