Hillary Clinton holds a seven-point lead nationally among likely voters, according to a new poll from NBC News/Wall Street Journal.

Clinton leads the head-to-head race against Donald Trump, 48-41. With third party candidates included, Clinton leads by six points, 43-37, with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson polling at 10 percent and Green Party’s Jill Stein at 3 percent.

The previous NBC/WSJ survey conducted early last month polled only registered voters, not likely voters. In that poll, Clinton led by a slightly larger nine-point margin, 47-38. She had a nine-point lead with third party candidates added, 43-34, with Johnson at 10 percent and Stein at 5 percent.

The NBC/WSJ poll was conducted Sept. 16-19 among 922 likely voters nationally, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.23 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 46 to 42.3.
