WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump has returned to double digits, according to a new poll.
A Reuters/Ipsos poll released Friday says that more than 46 percent of likely American voters supported Clinton while about 33 percent supported Trump, increasing the Democratic favorite’s lead over her Republican rival by more than 13 points. Another 20 percent in the poll said they would support neither candidate.
Clinton’s lead rose back to double digits after Trump enjoyed a “brief boost in support” following the massacre in Orlando, Reuters notes. Trump’s response to the attacks was to reaffirm his ban on Muslims entering the United States, which brought the gap to 9 points.
The poll was conducted online and included more than 1,000 likely voters in all 50 states. According to Reuters, it has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
