Hillary Clinton slightly widened her lead over Donald Trump among likely voters to seven points in the latest weekly NBC News-Survey Monkey national tracking poll out Monday.

Clinton earned 51 percent support among likely voters compared to Trump’s 44 percent in a hypothetical two-way race. That’s a slight improvement for the Democratic nominee over last week’s results among likely voters in the same tracking poll, when Clinton earned 50 percent support to Trump’s 45 percent.

In a 4-way race with Libertarian Gary Johnson and the Green Party’s Jill Stein, Clinton earned 45 percent support to Trump’s 40 percent, Johnson’s 10 percent and Stein’s 3 percent. Aside from a one percentage point slip for Stein from last week’s poll, those numbers remain unchanged.

According to TPM’s Poll Tracker Average, Clinton has a slight lead with 47.7 percent of the vote nationally compared to 45.3 percent for Trump.

The NBC-Survey Monkey poll was conducted online between Sept. 19-25 among 13,598 adults who say they’re likely to vote. The margin of error was 1.1 percentage points.
