Fox News Poll: Trump Leads By One Point Nationally

Donald Trump holds a single-point lead over Hillary Clinton, 46-45, among likely voters nationally in the head-to-head matchup, according to the latest Fox News Poll.

In a four-way race, the race is reversed, with Clinton taking a one-point lead, 41-40, and Libertarian Gary Johnson at 8 percent and Green Party’s Jill Stein at 3 percent.

This new poll pushed TPM’s PollTracker Average for the national general election race into a tie, at 43.8 apiece.

Among registered voters, Clinton still leads by three points, 46-43. This marks a drop in her lead among registered voters from a Fox Poll released early this month, where she led by six points, 48-42. Fox News did not poll likely national voters in its previous poll.

The Fox News poll was conducted Sept. 11-14 via live telephone interview. The survey included 1,006 registered voters, as well as a subset of 867 likely voters. Both the registered and likely voter populations have a margin of error of plus or minus three percent.

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.
