The Republican presidential nominee nets 47 percent to Clinton’s 46 percent in that scenario, while another 7 percent remain undecided.

Recent polls show a tightening race between Clinton and Trump at both the national and state levels as Nov. 8 nears.

Two surveys from New Hampshire last week, however, found Clinton enjoying slight to modest leads over Trump there.

A Wall Street Journal/NBC News/Marist survey released on Oct. 26, for example, discovered Clinton 9 points ahead of Trump in the Granite State.

A Monmouth University poll out the same day, meanwhile, found Clinton leading Trump by 4 points in New Hampshire.

Clinton tops Trump by about 6 points in New Hampshire, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls there.

The former secretary of State’s advantage is smaller nationwide, with Trump trailing roughly 3 points behind her in the same index.

The New Hampshire Journal/Inside Sources conducted its latest poll of 408 likely voters in New Hampshire via landline telephone interviews from Oct. 26-28. It has a 4.2 percent margin of error.
