Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by seven points, 42 percent to 35 percent, according to the latest WBUR/MassINC poll.

The previous WBUR/MassINC poll, taken July 29 to Aug. 1 had Clinton leading by 15 points, revealing an eight point swing toward Trump.

The most recent poll surveyed 502 likely voters from Sept. 27 to Sept. 29 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent.

Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received 13 percent in the recent WBUR/MassINC poll published Friday, while Green Party candidate Jill Stein received four percent. In a head-to-head match up, Clinton leads Trump by nine points, 47 percent to 38 percent.

The poll also asked the likely voters who were surveyed which candidate they thought did the best job during Monday night’s first presidential debate. Fifty-nine percent said Clinton performed the best, while 19 percent said Trump.

More than 50 percent of voters said the debate didn’t make them more or less likely to vote for either candidate.

The Real Clear Politics polling average for New Hampshire has Clinton leading Trump by 5.7 percent.
