A second poll in New Hampshire in less than 24 hours shows Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton tied with just days remaining in their fight for the White House.

{mosads}Both major-party presidential nominees have 44 percent support among registered and likely voters in New Hampshire, according to a UMass Lowell/7News poll released Thursday.

That echoes a Boston Globe/Suffolk University poll released the same day that showed Clinton (D) and Trump (R) neck and neck at 42 percent apiece.

In the UMass survey, Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson has the support of 5 percent of those surveyed, and Green Party nominee Jill Stein is backed by 2 percent. Another 4 percent are undecided.

The poll finds the race has tightened significantly since a poll taken in mid-October, when Clinton had a 6-point lead over her Republican rival.

A majority of those surveyed, 52 percent, think Clinton will win the election, while just 34 percent think Trump will be victorious.

Still, 71 percent said they think the country will remain divided no matter who is elected the next president.

Nearly 70 percent said the FBI’s review of additional emails potentially related to Clinton’s private server will not make a difference regarding whom they are voting for, but 28 percent said the new revelations make them less likely to vote for Clinton.

The poll was conducted from Oct. 28 to Nov. 2 by the UMass Lowell Center for Public Opinion among 901 New Hampshire registered voters and 695 likely voters. The margin of error for likely voters is 4.28 percentage points.

According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls in the state, Trump has a 1.5-point advantage over his Democratic rival, 43.5 percent to 42 percent.
