In September, Trump was ahead by just 2 points in this four-way race, 40 percent to 38 percent.

    In Texas, Trump's advantage over Clinton is 9 points, 49 percent to 40 percent, with Johnson at 6 percent and Stein at 2 percent.

    In Georgia, Trump is ahead by just 1 point among likely voters, 45 percent to 44 percent, with Johnson at 8 percent. (Stein isn't on the ballot in the state.) In September, Trump was up 2 points, 44 percent to 42 percent.
