Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump in Georgia, according to a new poll, the second recent survey showing her ahead in the state, which hasn’t voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1992.

Clinton leads Trump by 7 points, 44 to 37 percent, in the JMC Analytics poll released Monday, with Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson taking 7 percent.

Clinton leads Trump, 84 to 6 percent, among black respondents, while Trump leads her among white respondents, 52 to 25 percent.

Clinton also holds a big advantage among women, 48 to 35 percent, while men are more evenly split, 41 to 40 percent, in favor of Trump.

Poll respondents more than not disapprove of the job President Obama is doing, with 48 percent disapproving and 44 percent approving.

It’s the second consecutive poll showing Clinton ahead in Georgia as Trump has slipped in polls nationally. She held a 4-point lead, 44 to 40 percent, in an Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll released last week.

The JMC Analytics poll of likely Georgia households with 615 respondents was conducted Saturday and Sunday with a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
