NBC News reports in Arizona, which Republicans have carried in every presidential election since 2000, Trump leads Clinton among likely voters by one point, 42 percent to 41 percent. (Among the larger group of all registered voters, it's Clinton 41 percent, Trump 40 percent.)

The races remain equally close in all four states when expanded to include Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson and the Green Party's Jill Stein.

According to the poll:

  • In Arizona: Trump leads Clinton among likely voters by one point, 42 percent to 41 percent. (Among the larger group of all registered voters, it's Clinton 41 percent, Trump 40 percent.)
  • In Georgia: Trump is ahead by three points among likely voters, 46 percent to 43 percent. (Among registered voters, the candidates are tied at 44 percent each.)
  • In Nevada: Clinton is up by one point, 45 percent to 44 percent (but she's ahead by five points among registered voters, 46 percent to 41 percent)
  • In New Hampshire: Clinton leads Trump by one point, 42 percent to 41 percent (and they're tied at 40 percent each among registered voters).

The polls also reveal that Republicans lead in all four states' contested Senate races, though Nevada is within the poll's margin of error.

The surveys were conducted September 6-8.
