Hillary Clinton is seeing the benefits of her strong debate performance in battleground state polls released Thursday and Friday.

In Nevada, a Suffolk University poll released Friday found Clinton had the support of 44% of likely voters while Donald Trump had 38%. Libertarian Gary Johnson had 7%. Clinton’s boost in Nevada shows a surge past previous polls in the state in recent weeks which had Trump ahead by a percentage point or two. The poll of 500 likely Nevada voters was conducted Sept. 27-29 and has a margin of error of 4.4 points.

In New Hampshire, a WBUR-FM poll had Clinton 9 points ahead of Trump with likely voters in a two-way race, 47%-38%. When third party candidates are added the lead narrows slightly to 7 points. Clinton had 42%, Trump had 35%. Johnson had 13% backing and the Green Party's Jill Stein had 4%.

The numbers released Friday are a few points better for Clinton than polling in early September that indicated a tighter race. The telephone poll of 502 likely New Hampshire voters was conducted Sept. 27-29 and has a margin of error of 4.4 points.

And a Detroit News/WDIV-TV poll released late Thursday showed Clinton with a 7-point lead over Trump in both a head-to-head matchup and four-way field with Johnson and Stein. In the four-way race Clinton had 42%, Trump had 35%, Johnson had the support of 9% of Michigan likely voters and Stein had 3%. Just under one-tenth (9%) are undecided.
