Democrat Hillary Clinton has jumped out to a nine-point lead in the battleground state of New Hampshire, while she’s tied with Republican Donald Trump in Nevada, according to two new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist polls.
In New Hampshire, Clinton gets the support of 45 percent of likely voters, and Trump gets 36 percent. Libertarian Gary Johnson is at 10 percent and the Green Party’s Jill Stein is at 4 percent.
In a two-way race, Clinton’s advantage over Trump is eight points, 47 percent to 39 percent – up from her one-point lead last month, 42 percent to 41 percent.

In Nevada, meanwhile, Clinton and Trump are tied among likely voters, 43 percent to 43 percent, and Johnson gets 10 percent. Stein isn't on the ballot in the Silver State.
In a head-to-head contest in Nevada, Clinton and Trump remain tied at 45 percent each.
“In Las Vegas terms, the contest for Nevada’s six electoral votes is a ‘push’ right now,” says Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.
According to Miringoff, Clinton could lose Florida, Nevada, North Carolina and Ohio – but still win the presidency by holding on to New Hampshire's four electoral votes and Pennsylvania.
