Hillary Clinton has a seven-point lead over Donald Trump leading into the final presidential debate, according to a new national Fox News poll.

The former Secretary of State leads the poll, 49-42, among likely voters nationwide.

With third-party candidates included, Clinton polls six points ahead of the businessman, 45-39, with Libertarian Gary Johnson behind at 5 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent.

Clinton’s lead has dropped slightly since Fox News polled national likely voters immediately after the second debate. The previous poll showed Clinton +8 and now she leads +7 in a head-to-head match, and with third party candidates included, Clinton polled +7 last week and now the poll shows Clinton +6.

The Fox News poll was conducted Oct. 15-17 via live telephone interview among 912 likely voters nationwide, and has a margin of error of plus or minus three percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the general election shows Clinton leading Trump, 49.5 to 41.9.
