Republican nominee Donald Trump holds a slight lead over Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in Michigan on the eve of Election Day, according to a newly released poll.

Trafalgar group, a Republican leaning firm, surveyed over 1,200 “likely general election voters” in the Great Lakes state on Nov. 6.


Trump garnered 48.52 percent support, while Clinton received 46.82 percent support. Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein received 2.89 and 0.90 percent support respectively — 0.87 percent of respondents support someone else or are undecided.

The survey also asked voters who they think most of thier neighbors are voting for, and Trump received 52.14 percent of the vote. While 39.78 percent said they thought most of thier neighbors were supporting Clinton, 4.14 said Johnson and 0.81 responded with Stein.

Likely general election voters were selected at random from a list of registered voters based on election participation and registration date, according to Trafalgar. In excess of 45,000 households were called over the duration of the poll, and each household participant was asked to opt-in to the survey if they planned to vote in the 2016 presidential election. The margin of error is 2.77 percent.

Strategic National Poll showed the two nominees in a dead heat, with 44 percent support in the Mitten state on Nov. 3

Fox 2 Detroit/Mitchell poll reported that Clinton had a five-point lead in Michigan on Nov. 3. The RealClearPolitics average shows Trump at 42.3 percent and Clinton at 47.3 percent in Michigan between Nov. 1 to Nov. 4.

Trump will host his final campaign event in Grand Rapids, Mich. Monday night.

Clinton visited Michigan Monday, as did President Barack Obama and former President Bill Clinton, who visited Lansing Sunday. The Democratic nominee closes out her campaign at a rally in Philadelphia, Penn. Monday, the place where the former first lady accepted the Democratic party nomination for president.
