The latest poll from Minnesota shows Hillary Clinton growing her lead over Donald Trump by two points since last month.

A Star Tribune Minnesota poll reveals Clinton leads Trump by eight points, 47 percent to 39 percent.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received six percent in the poll while Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Independent candidate Evan McMullin raked in one percent.

Clinton won the majority of support from independent voters in this poll, which is a change from the previous poll where Trump had been leading with independents. Six percent of voters say they are undecided.

The survey sampled 625 registered voters in Minnesota from Oct. 20 to Oct. 22 following the final presidential debate in Las Vegas, Nevada last week. The results have a plus or minus four percent margin of error.
