Hillary Clinton holds a small, 3-point lead over Donald Trump in the swing state of New Hampshire, a new poll released Friday shows.

The MassINC Polling Group/WBUR-FM poll gives Clinton 41 percent support to Trump’s 38 percent.

That’s within the poll’s margin of error of 4.4 percentage points. The same poll had the Democratic nominee leading by 7 points last month, 42 percent to 35.

Libertarian Gary Johnson has 11 percent of the vote, while Green Party nominee Jill Stein has 3 percent.

The poll shows the third-party candidates may be drawing support from the Democratic nominee. When those surveyed had only Trump and Clinton to choose from, Clinton had a 5-point lead over Trump, 46 percent to 41 percent.

Granite State voters view Clinton more favorably than Trump.

While 40 percent of likely voters have a favorable opinion of Clinton, only 34 percent have a favorable view of the Republican nominee.

Still, 54 percent view Clinton unfavorably, and 60 percent view Trump unfavorably.

The poll also shows a tight race for one of New Hampshire’s Senate seats.

Incumbent Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R) and Gov. Maggie Hassan (D) are tied at 47 percent support.

The race is viewed as a toss-up that could play a role in whether Republicans maintain control of the Senate after November.

The poll was conducted from Oct. 10 to 12 among 501 likely voters.
