Clinton Leads Trump by 11 Points in Reuters/Ipsos National Poll

Clinton vs Trump since 4/1/16
This is more like it!
Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead over Republican rival Donald Trump, regaining ground after the New York billionaire briefly tied her last month, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.

The shift in support comes as Clinton steps up her attacks on the real estate mogul's policy positions, and as Trump fends off criticisms of his eponymous university and the pace at which he doled out money that he raised for U.S. veterans.

Some 46 percent of likely voters said they supported Clinton, while 35 percent said they supported Trump, and another 19 percent said they would not support either, according to the survey of 1,421 people conducted between May 30 and June 3.
The best part? Most of this poll was taken before Hillary demolished Donald in her San Diego masterpiece speech...and all of it was taken before Clinton clinches the nomination next week and begins uniting the Democratic Party.


  1. that is the best part, that poll shows the 'competence' bump, and the 'high road' bump, but she'll still get the 'presumptive nominee' bump and the 'effective finally framing of the fool' bump.

  2. I was predicting we would get polls showing Trump as low as 35. Boy, that was easy! I guess I should have said 25.

  3. The poll does not, apparently, normalize the proportions of the respondents to known levels. Judging by yesterday's poll, it had much higher levels of Democrats responding than Republicans, with Independents, now Gallup's highest group, at a very low level in the poll. Normalize these proportions and you have a near-tie.
