Hillary Clinton Opens Double-Digit Lead Over Donald Trump in New Poll

Is former secretary of state over her hump?

Hillary Clinton opened up a double-digit lead over Donald Trump, regaining some lost ground, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.

The good news: 46 percent of voters said they’d vote for Clinton, while 35 percent say they’d back Trump.

The bad news: 19 percent said they won’t vote for either one of them.

Trump had briefly tied Clinton in support among likely voters in May, raising speculations that the general election could end up being a tight race.

These latest numbers should give Clinton’s camp something to smile about as it heads into a contentious primary battle in California on June 7, where Sanders has quickly closed his own double-digit gap with Clinton.

A USC Dornsife/Los Angeles Times poll released Thursday evening shows Sanders leading with 44 percent to Clinton’s 43 percent.

Clinton is hoping to avoid an embarrassing loss to the Vermont senator in the most populous state in the country before heading into there Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia next month.

Clinton’s polling surge comes as Trump is being hammered over his Trump University lawsuits claiming that he misled thousands of people who paid up to $35,000 for Trump’s seminars.

Trump was already on the defense after a Washington Post article found that he did not deliver the $6 million as he’d promised to veteran groups in January.

On Thursday, Clinton used a foreign policy speech in California to slam Trump’s policies as “dangerously incoherent,” essentially roasting the GOP frontrunner during the entire 34-minute address.
