Suffolk U Poll: Clinton And Trump Neck-And-Neck In New Hampshire

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are locked in a tie in a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll of New Hampshire voters, showing a tightening in the swing state.

This latest poll, plus two earlier polls showing Trump ahead in New Hampshire, have pushed the presidential race in the Granite State, which previously leaned toward Clinton, into a close tossup on TPM’s Electoral Scoreboard.

The two candidates are tied at 42 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson trailing at 5 percent, Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent, and American Delta Party candidate Rocky De La Fuente polling at less than one percent.

Trump has closed into the former Secretary of State since Suffolk University/Boston Globe previously polled New Hampshire voters in early October, when Clinton polled two points ahead, 44-42.

Two other New Hampshire polls released today, from MassINC/WBUR and American Research Group, showed the businessman ahead in a head-to-head race, by two points and five points respectively.

The Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll surveyed 500 likely New Hampshire voters via live telephone interview from Oct. 31-Nov. 2, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in New Hampshire shows a tossup, with Clinton leading Trump, 43.9 to 43.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
