Trump Leads By One Point In New Hampshire As State’s Polls Tighten

November 4, 2016 9:26 a.m.

Donald Trump holds a slight advantage in a UMass Lowell/7News poll of New Hampshire voters, as the race in the Granite state tightens in the final days before Nov. 8.

Trump leads Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head poll, 45-44, among likely New Hampshire voters.

When pitted against third-party candidates, Trump and Clinton are tied at 44 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 5 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 2 percent.

Clinton previously held a six-point advantage, 45-39, over the businessman when UMass Lowell/7News polled the race in early October.

Just a week ago, an NBC/Wall Street Journal/Marist College poll showed Clinton ahead by eight points, but the race has tightened to a tossup in TPM’s Electoral Scoreboard as New Hampshire polls from this week show Trump ahead in the state.

The UMass Lowell/7News poll surveyed 695 likely New Hampshire voters from Oct. 28-Nov. 2 via live telephone interview, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.28 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in New Hampshire shows a tossup, with Clinton leading Trump, 43.9 to 43.4.
