Poll: Hillary Clinton Leads Donald Trump in North Carolina, Race Tied in Florida

Oct 30, 2016

Hillary Clinton has a six-point lead over rival Donald Trump in North Carolina, a battleground state, 9 days ahead of the 2016 election, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.

The Democratic and Republican candidates are essentially tied in Florida, according to a second poll. Clinton has the support of 45% of likely voters, while Trump has 44%. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has 5% of support, while the Green Party's Jill Stein stands at 2%.

In North Carolina, Clinton has an advantage over Trump at 47% to 41%. Johnson gets 8%, and Stein isn't on the ballot.

The polls—conducted before the FBI announced it was examining additional emails related to Clinton's use of a private email server—come as residents of both states are voting early.

Clinton leads in North Carolina by a 61% to 33% margin among the 29% of those who said they have already voted. She is also ahead 54% to 37% among 36% of likely voters in Florida who said they have already voted. Among people who haven't voted in Florida, Trump leads 51% to 42%.

Both polls have a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points among registered voters and 3.5 percentage points among likely voters.
