Democrat Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 6 points in the latest Fox News poll
Here are the results given by randomly selected registered voters:
- Clinton: 44 percent
- Trump: 38 percent
The margin is closer among those who describe themselves as interested in the race:
- Clinton: 45 percent
- Trump: 43 percent
The latter numbers puts the two within the poll's three-point margin of error.
When Libertarian Gary Johnson is added to the mix, Clinton maintains a five-point lead, though both major party candidates lose voters to Johnson.
- Clinton: 41 percent
- Trump: 36 percent
- Johnson: 10 percent
Clinton's lead is up over the past month when she was ahead 42-37. Two months ago, Trump was in the lead in the Fox News poll 45-42.
Clinton's strengths are with blacks (87-3), women (51-32), those under age 45 (45-35) and people with incomes under $50,000 (52-30.)
Trump is ahead among white evangelicals (66-18) whites without college degrees (51-33), gun owners (52-30), whites (48-34), men (46-36) and independents (39-31.)
Trump is seen as "hot-headed" by 89 percent and "obnoxious" by 83 percent. Only 35 percent describe Clinton as "hot-headed," and 45 percent as "obnoxious."
On the question of whether the candidate cares "about people like me," 45 percent say Clinton does while only 35 percent say so about Trump.
The "experienced" card also goes to Clinton over Trump (77-34), but so does the "corrupt" label (58-45.) Neither has high honest and trustworthy numbers: Clinton 30, Trump 34.
On making the right decisions for the country, 24 percent of Republicans don't think Trump is up to the job, while 14 percent of Democrats are doubtful of Clinton's abilities.
And when it comes to party loyalty, Clinton also has the advantage: Sixty-six percent of Democrats who voted for Sen. Bernie Sanders say they'll vote for Clinton over Trump. Only 52 percent of Republicans who preferred another candidate say they'll vote for Trump over Clinton.
The poll conducted 1,017 telephone interviews with registered voters nationwide from June 26-28. It has a margin of error of three points.
