New National Poll Shows Clinton Leading Trump By 5 Points

Democrat Hillary Clinton has a 5-point lead over Republican Donald Trump in a new CNN/ORC poll out Tuesday.

Among registered voters, 47 percent say they support Clinton while 42 said they would vote Trump in a general election matchup. The former Secretary of State’s numbers showed a 7-point dip from the poll’s last survey while Trump’s support has held steady.

The voters surveyed also think Clinton is far more likely to win the presidency in November than the New York businessman, with 55 percent saying they think Clinton will win to 38 percent saying they expect a Trump victory.

The CNN/ORC poll of 1001 registered voters was conducted by phone June 16-19 and includes interviews with 891 voters. There is a 3.5 percent margin of error.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
