Clinton opens up double-digit lead over Trump nationwide - Reuters/Ipsos poll

Source: Reuters

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.

Trump had briefly tied Clinton in support among likely U.S. voters in mid-May, raising expectations for a tight race between the two likely contenders in November's presidential election.

2. Trump's nomination bounce appears over.

As is Sanders rationale for winning over the SDs.

And much of that poll was taken before Hillary gave that barnstorming foreign policy speech eviscerating Trump. The overwhelmingly good press on that speech really put a bounce in her step and fired up the crowds at her campaign stops in California today.

7. True but

Trump has no place to go but down....

He continues to make statements that will hurt him outside the south.

Last night it was "My African-American"

What will he say today? What will he say in October?

13. Which is also why the polls saying the Bernie would win by wider margins in November

should also be taken with a grain of salt.

Everything is a reflection of today, and that could easily change by tomorrow.

5. Maybe the polls are just full of it. Maybe nothing actually changed that much.

Such jumping around doesn't lead to confidence in your methods.

11. Polls with low response rates show a lot of volatility, especially early

 

If one candidates supporters are more energized, they're more likely to sit through a poll, etc.

8. Once Bernie bows out ...

 

... Clinton and her folks will be able to focus on the Donald 24/7. It isn't even going to be close.

12. What kind of person would be so bitter at learning that

 

the Democrat is leading a particularly repulsive Republican? Are you lost?

P.S. She will win the nomination on Tuesday. Be sure to bring a beer into which you can cry.
