The poll of 500 likely voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.4 percent. The two polls show the presidential race in Ohio is extremely close.

But the poll indicates Trump is losing ground among independent voters. In last month’s poll, Trump held a 27-point advantage among independents compared to a smaller 6-point lead in the new poll.

“If Clinton takes the lead among independents, she wins Ohio,” said David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Research Center in Boston.

The poll also showed Republican Sen. Rob Portman leading 46-to-31 percent over former Democratic governor Ted Strickland.
