Trump is ahead of Clinton by one point in the red state

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are nearly tied for the support of likely voters in Georgia less than a week before the presidential election, according to a new poll.

Trump leads Clinton in the traditionally red state by one point in both a three-way race—since Green Party’s Jill Stein is not on the ballot in Georgia—and a two-way race, an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll has found.

The Republican nominee is ahead of Clinton 45% to 44%, with Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson in the mix, and 47% to 46% without Johnson. Georgia last went Democrat in the 1992 election, when Bill Clinton won the state.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist poll in Georgia was conducted between Oct. 30 and Nov. 1. It interviewed 937 registered voters, with a margin of error of plus-minus 3.2 percentage points, and 707 likely voters, with a margin of error of plus-minus 3.7 percentage points.
