National poll shows Clinton up by 5 points

Presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton holds a five point lead over the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, according to a new national poll.

Clinton leads Trump, 47 to 42 percent, among registered voters in the CNN/ORC Poll released Tuesday morning. Those results are similar to a NBC News/Survey Monkey weekly tracking poll that shows Clinton with a six point lead over Trump, compared to a two point lead two weeks ago.

Clinton has held the lead in recent national polls since she was declared the presumptive Democratic nominee earlier this month.

Trump has faced weeks of negative attention over his comments on a federal judge’s Mexican heritage and proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country.

A majority of voters in the CNN poll, 55 percent, think that Clinton will win in November while 38 percent think Trump will win.

More Clinton supporters, 37 percent say they’ve made up their minds on who they will support in November compared to 33 percent of Trump supporters. 10 percent of Clinton supporters say the could change their mind, while 9 percent of Trump supporters say the same.

The CNN survey of 1,001 American adults, including 891 registered voters was conducted between June 16-19 and has three point margin of error.
