A polling average of New Hampshire’s likely voters shows that Hillary Clinton has a 3-point edge over Donald Trump, while a recent poll shows Clinton up 11 points over Trump.

The CNN polling average in New Hampshire shows Clinton with 44 percent to Trump’s 41 percent.

But a poll from the University of New Hampshire (UNH) on Monday shows Clinton has an 11-point lead over Trump, or 49 percent to his 38 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson has 6 percent of voters in the poll. The survey was conducted from Nov. 3 to Nov. 6 among 707 likely voters, with a margin of error of 3.7 points.

But the UNH poll said that both Trump and Clinton “will end the election cycle historically unpopular among New Hampshire voters.”

Other polls have shown a much closer race in New Hampshire: a Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll in the Granite State last week found the race tied at 42 percent.

The most recent RealClearPolitics average shows Trump trailing by Clinton by less than 1 percentage point, with Trump at 43.4 and Clinton at 43.7.
