(CNN) – Donald Trump has opened up a five-point lead over Hillary Clinton in Ohio, according to a new Bloomberg poll released Wednesday.
In a four-way race with third party candidates, the survey found Trump topping Clinton, 44%-39%, among the state’s likely voters. Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson and Green Party nominee Jill Stein picked up the support of 10% and 3%, respectively.
Both Johnson and Stein will be on the ballot in Ohio, though Johnson will be listed as an independent and not as a libertarian.
The poll was conducted Friday through Monday and could possibly serve be the first indicator of Clinton’s turbulent weekend.
At a fundraiser in New York City on Friday night, the former secretary of state told a crowd of donors that “you can put half of Trump supporters into what I call the basket of deplorables.”
