A new poll finds Hillary Clinton with a 6-point lead over Donald Trump in New Hampshire.  

{mosads}A UMass Lowell/7News poll released Thursday found that 45 percent of New Hampshire voters support Clinton, to 39 percent for Trump. Libertarian Gary Johnson won 9 percent support, while Green Party nominee Jill Stein trails at 2 percent.  

Fifty-two percent of women back Clinton, to only 33 percent for Trump. But more men, 46 percent, support Trump, to 37 percent for Clinton. 

Clinton is polling at 88 percent among Democrats, while Trump has 77 percent support from self-identified Republicans.  

The poll noted that 11 percent of those who identified as Republican plan to vote for Johnson, compared to just 2 percent of Democrats. 

Both candidates are still struggling with favorability ratings — 63 percent find Trump to be unfavorable, while 55 percent have an unfavorable view of Clinton. 

They both poll at just 33 percent for being honest and trustworthy, but far more see Clinton as qualified: 61 percent to Trump’s 34 percent. And 64 percent of likely voters say Clinton has the right temperament to be president, while only 28 percent say the same for Trump.

The poll was conducted between Oct. 7 and 11 among 654 New Hampshire registered voters. It has a margin of error of 4.35 percentage points. 

A RealClearPolitics average polling in the state, which does not include the latest poll, puts Clinton up by 5 points.
