A new Quinnipiac University poll of four swing states shows a tight presidential race between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton.

The two major party candidates are within the poll's 3.5-to-3.6 margin of error except in Pennsylvania, where Clinton leads by 4 points.

Here are the results from Florida, North Carolina, Ohio and Pennsylvania:

Florida:

  • Clinton: 47 percent
  • Trump: 47 percent

North Carolina:

  • Clinton: 47 percent
  • Trump: 43 percent

Ohio:

  • Trump: 46 percent
  • Clinton: 45 percent

Pennsylvania:

  • Clinton: 48 percent
  • Trump: 43 percent

Here are the results when Libertarian Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein are included:

Florida:

  • Clinton: 43 percent
  • Trump: 43 percent
  • Johnson: 8 percent
  • Stein: 2 percent

North Carolina:

  • Clinton: 42 percent
  • Trump: 38 percent
  • Johnson: 15 percent
  • Stein: Not on ballot

Ohio:

  • Trump: 41 percent
  • Clinton: 37 percent
  • Johnson: 14 percent
  • Stein: 4 percent

Pennsylvania:

  • Clinton: 44 percent
  • Trump: 39 percent
  • Johnson: 9 percent
  • Stein: 3 percent

"The effect of the Republican and Democratic conventions on the presidential race has run its course," said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll. "As the campaign enters its final stage, Florida and Ohio, two of the largest and most important Swing States, are too close to call, while North Carolina and Pennsylvania give Hillary Clinton the narrowest of leads."

Brown said the "obvious takeaway" is that Trump has staged a comeback from his post-Democratic convention lows. "Taking a bit longer view, however, we see a race that appears little changed from where it was as the GOP convention began in July, and at least in these four key states is very much up for grabs," he said.

The polls were conducted August 29-September 7 on landline and cell phones and spoke to people identifying themselves as "likely voters."
