About one-fourth of the American public is undecided about their choice for U.S. president, according to the June CNBC All-American Survey
In the poll of 801 registered voters between June 11 and June 14:
- 40 percent support Hillary Clinton.
- 35 percent support Donald Trump.
- 25 percent are undecided.
The poll results said that 14 percent of those who were undecided are choosing "neither" Trump or Clinton.
"It's the hallmark of a campaign with high negatives around these candidates," Public Opinion Strategies pollster Micah Roberts said in the CNBC report.
In other findings in the poll, Clinton and Trump's supporters are almost even in their belief that their candidate is best for the U.S. economy, with 39 percent of the voters choosing Clinton and 38 percent choosing Trump.
Trump supporters slightly edged out Clinton's in beliefs on who is better at dealing with terrorism: 40 percent believe Trump will be the better candidate to do so, while 38 percent believe Clinton will be better in that role.
That showing is a "major red flag" for Trump, according to Democratic pollster Jay Campbell. He said that as far back as 2002, Republicans usually hold 10- to 36-point leads over Democrats on issues of national security.
Among voters who classify themselves as independent, not affiliated with either party, the race is tighter. Clinton has a three-point lead over Trump with independent voters. Thirty-five percent of them in the survey chose neither candidate.
The Washington Post reports
that it appears that Clinton is building momentum among voters. Clinton is leading in four recent polls, by 12, nine, five, and six points, according to the Post.
