Poll: Clinton opens double-digit lead over Trump

Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead over Republican rival Donald Trump, a Reuters poll released Friday found.

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 a Reuters poll last month.

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

That poll, on May 19, found that Trump had a 45-42 percent edge over Clinton, if the presidential election were held today.

In recent weeks, the two candidates have focused on attacking each other’s policies 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.
