Hilary Clinton still holds a double digit lead over Donald Trump in the latest release of the Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll.

The poll showed that Clinton had an 11.6 point lead over Trump, down slightly from the 13-point lead she had in the in the five days that ended Saturday.

A higher percentage of voters said in this poll (compared to last week’s) that they would vote for neither candidate. This week, 22.4 percent of likely voters said they wouldn’t voter for either person. Last week, 20.6 percent of likely voters took that stance.

A Bloomberg News poll also released Tuesday showed that Clinton held a 12-point lead over Trump among likely voters nationwide.

The poll was conducted from Friday to Tuesday among 1,063 likely voters with a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.

  2. A new poll shows Clinton up 12 on Trump — because it comes at a great time for Clinton

    “Hillary Clinton gets 49 percent of the support in a new Bloomberg poll – in a three-way contest that includes Libertarian Gary Johnson.”

    and from later in the piece…

    “One of the more remarkable bits of data in the Bloomberg poll is that a full 55 percent of respondents say they would never back Trump. That number is boosted by women, 63 percent of whom draw that line in the sand (and who probably make up a big chunk of the 62 percent upset with his comments that we mentioned earlier). Only 43 percent say that about Clinton – slightly less than those who say it about Johnson.”

  3. There are going to be many GOP women who will continue to play the good game until they find themselves in the booth — then they will wait to say anything about it until many years later …

    to their grandchildren —

  4. It’s a huuuuuuge lead.
