Hillary Clinton’s extended her lead over Donald Trump to seven points in the latest NBC News/Survey Monkey national poll released on Tuesday.

Clinton leads Trump 49-42 among registered voters, a slight bump from the 48-44 lead she had over the presumptive Republican presidential nominee in last week’s tracking poll.

Over the past week, Clinton made headway among moderate, male and white voters, according to the tracking poll.

Clinton jumped 7 points among moderate voters from last week’s tracking poll, now leading Trump 58-33 in that subgroup, according to NBC News.

Trump’s lead among male and white voters narrowed since last week’s tracking poll. He dropped five points among male voters, to lead Clinton 51-42, and he dropped four points among white voters, now leading Clinton 50-41 among white voters in the tracking poll.

NBC News/Survey Monkey surveyed 9,355 registered voters online June 6-12 with a margin of error of 1.4 percentage points.

  1. White? Male?

    Sounds like Bernie voters coming home. I expect that number to increase once Bernie finally concedes and endorses Hillary. Especially if he actually campaigns for her like he promised he would.

  2. Scariest part? Four in ten Americans still think Trump is Presidential material.
    That’s terrifying.

  3. Also as Trump continues on the path he’s clearly committed to treading. It’s clear he’s not planning on any sort of pivot in any direction and that ought to contribute pretty well.

  4. I believe I called a post-Bernie-elimination Bounce, and was told by angry Berniebros that “the witch” is dead.

    Damn me and my disgusting wisdom and blasted experience born out of past observations and common sense!

  5. It’s going to become embarrassing to be a Trump voter. Basically, you’ll be admitting you’re an idiot. People will resist doing that.
