Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by seven points among likely voters in a head-to-head matchup, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll released Friday morning.
When third party candidates are added to the question, Clinton leads Trump by six points, 45-39, among likely voters, with Libertarian Gary Johnson at 10 points and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at four points.
The last national McClatchy-Marist poll released in early August did not survey likely voters and instead polled a broader pool of registered voters. In that poll, Clinton led Trump among registered voters by 15 points, 48-33.
TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Clinton leading Trump 43.3-41.6 nationally.
Marist surveyed 758 likely voters Sept. 15-20 via phone with a margin of error plus or minus 3.6 percentage points.
