Clinton Stretches Lead over Trump to 14 Points in National Poll

Hillary Clinton has managed to grow her lead on Donald Trump by 14 points.

The Hill reports:

The Reuters/Ipsos poll shows Clinton leading Trump 47 percent to 33 percent. Another 20 percent said they wouldn’t support either candidate.

A RealClearPolitics polling average shows Clinton leading Trump 45 percent to 39 percent.

Trump’s slip in the polls comes after federal filings showed he has raised surprisingly little money for a presumptive presidential candidate.

Campaign finance disclosures released earlier this week showed Trump’s campaign finished May with just $1.3 million in the bank and raised $3.1 million.

Clinton raised $28.28 million in May and has more than $42 million cash on hand.

Trump’s campaign responded to those reports by upping its calls for online donations, and Trump has tried to reassure voters that he and the Republican National Committee have raised “millions” in the past few weeks.

The poll was conducted online and included 1,201 likely voters in all 50 states. It has a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.

    That poll had to have been done before he went to Scotland on his business trip, because his remarks there will definitely push his poll numbers up bigly.

    • Ojas

      His campaign is “make America great again”, yet he’s going to other countries to open businesses. What makes you think that will help him? Beyond that, it’s been proven many times, most of what Trump says is false. http://www.politifact.com/personalities/donald-trump/

        BS…..And your KILLARY is collecting $ from the muslim countries….lol…Open your damn eyes! SHE is bought! Why do you think she wants 60 thousand more in our country!!!

  • SheriffBart

    His polls numbers will plummet after his Scotland fiasco. I think we are in for an Alf Landon-type landslide. GOP keeps getting dumber and dumber.
    Had they nominated someone like Kasich, it wouldn’t even be close.

    • Merrt

      Well yeah because Kasich is a democrat, with an R near his name.. so theres that.. no thanks

  • Marty Rice

    Nice try with your phony numbers and slanderous language. The felon Hillary needs to take a break from counting her ill-gotten money & spend more time with her lawyers…

    • dbarmmer

      Yeah. Right. Because tRUMP is such a Man of Great Integrity and Righteousness. And fire is wet.

      • Rebecca Gee

        Awww, your a Killary fan…..She will be in jail before Nov!

        • dbarmmer

          Before you learn the proper usage of you’re…and your?

          And no. Not really a fan. Thanks for the assumption, though.

          • dbarmmer

            Also doubt Hillary (her actual name) will be in jail before November. Good chance she will be in the White House, however. Maybe Joey Porter will be in prison, though?

    Nice try Reuters….we already know you’re in the bag for the Leftists. phoney polls aren’t gonna help the Hildabeast. Not even a little.

    • JohnS92098

      YaYa, nice try Reuters!
      Some of us hicks know not to trust anyone but Donald!
      Yeeeeeeeeee-Haaaaaaawwwwwwww!!

      • Iatemine

        Spoken like a true ignorant urbanite who has never lived without air conditioning or someone else providing your needs. You have anything but insults? Big Hillary supporter are you?

        • JohnS92098

          Try again.
          Unlike you and your friends out here who think they are self made heroes, I just don’t blame the poor for my problems.
          Good guess though.
          BTW, I’m pretty sure “Hildebeast” was an insult. I’m surprised, since by you complained about me insulting you. That would make you a hypocrite.

      • wbischo

        Hicks being the operative word. Only the VERY IGNORANT AND TOTALLY UNEDUCATED would still be taken in by the rambling rhetoric of Donald Trump. HILLARY has some supporters who are very poor, but they are smart enough to know she is honestly working for ALL the PEOPLE. They are also smart enough to
        know that Trump has been telling lies and cheating others in order enrich himself and to survive in the business world, during his entire adult life.

    • wbischo

      You are so brainwashed the GOP must have used a
      scouring brush. If polls had Trump ahead of Clinton, your own leaders would be supporting him, instead of jumping the s”t”inking ship. Even Republicans are sick of all the lies about Hillary, Obama, and their verbally created FALSE status of this great country. They know that Obama has this country in better shape than anyone could have dreamed possible, and Hillary and a Democratic Congress will keep it moving forward and won’t bankrupt the country and the rest of the world, as Trump would do. I think Republicans are horrified that
      their lies about Hillary may have backfired on them, and 20% of Americans do not want to support ANYONE, and HILLARY STILL HAS THE TRUST OF MOST AMERICANS AND ALSO MILLIONS OF SUPPORTERS AROUND THE WORLD.

      • Iatemine

        OK NOW I have been brainwashed. . You need to calm down Nancy. First off…I am NOT a Republican. So if you feel the unbridled need to hate on the internet because You CAN without getting your teeth kicked in take it somewhere else. Their haven’t even been any Conventions yet. NO polls in history have ever called an election nor captured the feelings of the voters accurately this far out…..ever! My original comment stands.

  • AvoMan

    Interesting how that 47% number keeps appearing as the number Democrats start with because that many are dependent on a government check. So what this poll is saying is they found a bunch of Sanders voters who they threw their votes out and Hillary doesn’t add 1% on her own

    • JohnS92098

      Ya. You’re probably the only one working.
      You’re amazing. It’s the rest of America that is the problem.
      No Trump voters are on assistance right?
      Not that you care about the truth, but they looked into exactly WHO is on assistance during the Obama/Romney election, and they found out that slightly MORE Romney supporters were receiving govt checks.
      That’s right. If you care about the truth and not just hateful false rhetoric you will start aiming your hate at the right target. You and your friends.

      • AvoMan

        Funny how facts are “hate” to Democrats. Facts are like Kryptonite to Democrats, they start twisting in pain and lashing out with change the subject responses when presented with them. My post was regarding the dishonesty of a poll that has a 20% margin for variable. Don’t worry about taking your shoes off to count JohnS92098, we’ll just say it’s Bush’s fault to keep you living in the past.

        • JohnS92098

          Actual facts aren’t hate. Your made up facts that blame the poor for the state of America are.
          You are the one blaming things on the 47%, and I am living in the past?
          I’m sure your hillbilly buddies out here believe your numbers just like you do.
          Too bad they are debunked, and it’s YOUR people that are the true burden on America.
          And I never mentioned your hero Dumya. That’s like picking on the mentally challenged.

          • AvoMan

            You’re still living in 2012 I see, putting words in others mouths etc. No one is “blaming”. Blaming for what? You are the one who then turned around and blamed: “your people are the true burden on America”. I mean what kind of bigot makes such broad generalizations and uses words like “hillbilly buddies” and “your people”? I guess that’s how bigots get to spew their hate. First set up a straw man by putting words in others mouths and then justify voicing your bigotry as if you are slapping down the straw man you create. you might want to seek professional help to work on those anger issues.

    Same polling company had Brexit losing big too

  • Merrt

    Yup and “70% of Brits polled” said they will vote to stay in the EU last Monday. lol

    Lets see..
    Under 1300 people were polled
    People in all 50 States were polled
    Equals Aprox 26 people in each State who were polled.
    They polled more Democrats than they did Republicans

    Result? Poll Results = BS
