Hillary Clinton holds an eight-point lead over Donald Trump among likely voters in New Hampshire following the last presidential debate, according to NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist College.

Clinton leads in the head-to-head match, 47-39, among likely New Hampshire voters.

The former Secretary of State’s lead expands to nine points, 45-36, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 10 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 4 percent, when third-party candidates are included in the race.

Her lead has grown dramatically since NBC/WSJ/Marist polled in September, from +1 then to +8 today in a head-to-head match, and from Clinton +2 in September to +9 with third-party candidates included.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll was conducted via live telephone interview from Oct. 20-24 among 768 likely New Hampshire voters, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election in New Hampshire shows Clinton leading Trump, 46.8 to 39.2.
