A change of heart among independent voters have propelled Hillary Clinton to a 5-point lead over Donald Trump nationally, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll released Friday.

The results:

  • Clinton: 45 percent;
  • Trump: 40 percent;
  • Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson: 6 percent;
  • Green Party nominee Jill Stein: 3 percent.

Clinton led by just 1 point in the last survey on Sept. 26.

The biggest flip for Clinton is with independent voters. In the last survey, Trump owned a 42 percent to 35 percent lead among independents.

Clinton turned the tables with that group:

  • Clinton: 46 percent;
  • Trump: 32 percent;
  • Johnson: 10 percent.

Clinton's 20-point margin with women and 45-point lead among non-white voters also power her lead.

Trump owns a 12-point lead among men and 13 points with white voters, according to the poll.

"Post-debate, Hillary Clinton checks all the boxes. With her base of women and nonwhite voters now solidly behind her and independent voters moving into her column, Donald Trump gets a wake-up call," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll. "The Indies are leaving in droves."

The poll, surveyed 1,064 likely voters nationwide from Oct. 5-6. The margin of error of +/- 3 percentage points.
