Hillary Clinton maintains a five-point lead nationally over Donald Trump, but undecideds are on the increase at a point in the election cycle when they're usually on the down slide, according to the latest Public Policy Polling survey.

The latest results:

  • Clinton 42 percent
  • Donald Trump 37 percent
  • Gary Johnson 6 percent
  • Jill Stein 4 percent
  • Evan McMullin 1 percent

Clinton's five-point margin over Trump is the same as it was one month ago, but support for both candidates decreased four points, from 46 percent for her and 41 percent for Trump, according to the PPP report.

At the same time, the undecided level jumped from 5 percent to 10 percent in the latest survey.

The reason: Both candidates are becoming more unpopular, according to the survey. Clinton's net favorability is at -11, five points worse, and Trump's net favorability is at -27, also five points worse from last month.

"The only place we're seeing any growth in support is actually for the third party candidates," said Dean Debnam, president of Public Policy Polling. "More voters are turning to them as Clinton and Trump see their favorability numbers go back in the wrong direction."

Public Policy Polling surveyed 881 likely voters between Aug. 26 to 28. The margin of error is +/- 3.3 percent.
