Hillary Clinton holds a six-point lead in North Carolina and is virtually tied in Florida with Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to two NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll results Sunday in the battleground states.
Trump has trimmed Clinton's lead in Florida from three points earlier this month.
The latest results in a four-way race among likely voters in Florida:
- Clinton 45 percent
- Trump 44 percent
- Libertarian Gary Johnson 5 percent.
- Green Party's Jill Stein 2 percent.
North Carolina results in the three-way race (Stein is not on the ballot there):
- Clinton 47 percent
- Trump 41 percent
- Johnson 8 percent
The polls were conducted Oct. 25-26, which is before FBI director James Comey's announcement the investigation of Hillary Clinton's private email server has been reopened.
Clinton leads early voting, which has opened, in both states: Florida, 54-37; North Carolina,61-33.
The Florida poll surveyed 990 registered voters (with a +/- 3.1 percent margin of error) and 779 likely voters (+/- 3.5 percent). North Carolina surveyed 1,018 registered voters (+/- 3.1 percent) and 780 likely voters (+/- 3.5 percent).
