Hillary Clinton takes a six-point lead over Donald Trump, coming back from a recent tie in the Ipsos/Reuters national tracking poll. But the new numbers come from before the first presidential debate held Monday, so the impact of that event is not measured.
Clinton leads 44-38 in a head-to-head match among likely voters in the weekly poll.
Her lead narrows slightly when third party candidates are included, to 42-38, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 7 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.
In the previous week’s Ipsos/Reuters poll, the two candidates were tied at 39 percent in the head-to-head poll. In the four-way match, Trump took a two point lead, 39-37, with Johnson at 7 percent and Stein at 2 percent.
The Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll was conducted online from Sept. 22-26, with a margin of error of plus or minus 3.5 percent.
TPM’s PollTracker Average for the national general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 46.4 to 41.1.
