Trump Takes Lead In New Hampshire Poll, Reversing Clinton’s Lead In State

Donald Trump comes out two points ahead in a New Hampshire poll from MassINC/WBUR, in a state where Clinton previously held a comfortable advantage.

Trump leads the head-to-head poll by two points, 44-42, in a poll conducted in the days following the FBI’s announcement about continued investigation into Clinton’s emails.

When third-party candidates are included, Trump leads by a single point, 40-39, with Libertarian Gary Johnson polling at 10 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 3 percent among likely and leaning voters.

Clinton’s lead fell in New Hampshire from a five point lead, 46-41, when MassINC/WBUR polled the state mid-October. She held a smaller, three-point lead, 41-38, when third party candidates were included in the poll, with Johnson at 11 percent and Stein at 3 percent.

The MassINC/WBUR poll surveyed 500 likely New Hampshire voters via live telephone interview from Oct. 29-Nov. 1, with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average for the presidential election in New Hampshire shows Clinton leading Trump, 45.3 to 41.2.

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.
