November 3, 2016 6:04 p.m.

Hillary Clinton holds a six-point lead over Donald Trump in the latest release of the Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll, conducted after FBI Director James Comey announced continued investigation into new emails.

Clinton comes out ahead in a head-to-head match among likely voters nationwide, 45-39.

When third-party candidates are included, the former Secretary of State leads by eight points, 45-37, with Libertarian Gary Johnson trailing at 5 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

Since Ipsos/Reuters released its previous tracking poll last week, the head-to-head match remained at Clinton +6, while the four-way race moved from Clinton +4 last week to Clinton +8 today.

The Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll surveyed 1,858 likely voters nationwide online from Oct. 29-Nov. 2, with a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 46 to 43.1.
