Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton’s lead over Republican Donald Trump has dipped to the single digits among likely U.S. voters for the first time in nearly a couple of weeks, in accordance with a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday. The June 27-July 1 poll showed a 9.4 percentage point lead for the former secretary of state throughout the New York businessman, down slightly from an 11.2 point lead in a previous five-day poll that ended on June 28.
Clinton had maintained a double-digit lead during the rolling poll since June 20, as she recovered from a short boost in Trump’s numbers when you look at the wake associated with the mass shooting in Orlando, Florida, when he renewed a call for a ban on Muslim immigration. Among likely voters, 43.9 percent now support Clinton, in contrast to 34.5 percent for Trump. Another 21.7 percent of likely voters would not support either candidate.
