Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 2 percentage points, 43-41, in North Carolina, according to a new survey from Public Policy Polling.

The poll's results show Clinton leading in PPP's surveys of North Carolina for the first time since March. Clinton's new advantage may not represent a marked shift in public opinion about her candidacy, but suggests there is growing animosity toward Trump.

Her net favorability rating changed just 1 percentage point since earlier this summer — from 39 percentage points favorable and 55 points unfavorable in June to 40 points favorable and 55 points unfavorable in August.

But Trump's net favorability rating has dropped 7 percentage points since June, from -14 net percentage points to -21 net points in August. Trump was 38 percent favorable and 52 percent unfavorable in June, and 37 percent favorable and 58 percent unfavorable in August.

PPP surveyed 830 likely voters from Aug. 5-7 by telephone and via the Internet. The poll had a 3.4 percentage point margin of error.
