Clinton leads Trump by 13 points: poll

By Cyra Master at the Hill



Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has a 13 point lead over her likely GOP rival, Donald Trump, in a Tuesday poll from Reuters/Ipsos.

The poll showed 46 percent of likely voters supported Clinton, while 33 percent said they’d vote for Trump.

The survey, conducted July 1-5, comes out the same day the FBI said it would not recommend pursuing charges against Clinton for her use of a private email server during her time as secretary of State. FBI Director James Comey called Clinton “extremely careless" handling of classified information.

Trump's support among likely voters in the Reuters/Ipsos poll was about 10 points below what 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney received at the same time in 2012.
