Clinton wins Virgin Islands caucuses

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is projected to win the Virgin Islands caucuses, The Hill reported Saturday night.

However, Clinton’s win does little to pad her delegate lead over Bernie Sanders, as the state offers only 7 pledged delegates.

At the same time the victory is a small boost to her pivot toward taking on presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump.

Clinton is comfortably ahead of Sanders in the delegate count but is facing negative pushback for not being able to put Sanders away, noted The Hill.

The win comes a day after a Reuters poll found that Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead over Trump.

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.

With the double-digit lead, Clinton appears to be regaining ground after the New York billionaire briefly tied her in Reuters poll last month.

One poll, conducted for Fox News, actually had Trump topping Clinton in a hypothetical head-to-head matchup.

In recent weeks, the two candidates have shifted their focus to one another as they prepare for a head-to-head matchup in November.

On Thursday, Clinton gave a speech in San Diego in which she blasted Trump’s  foreign policy platform, which she described as "dangerously incoherent".

"Donald Trump's ideas are not just different, they are dangerously incoherent," she said, adding, "They're not even really ideas, just a series of bizarre rants, personal feuds and outright lies."

Trump fired back by saying Clinton's speech "was such lies about my foreign policy."

“She broke federal law by putting her emails on a secret private server, that foreign countries could easily get to and hack,” Trump said in a criticism of Clinton’s private email saga.

“She’s one of the worst secretaries of state in the history of our country. Now she wants to be our president. Look, I’ll be honest. She has no natural talents to be president. This is not a president,” he added.
