After Orlando Shooting, Donald Trump Is Wiping Out Hillary Clinton’s Lead

Hillary Clinton’s lead over Donald Trump with voters nationwide is eroding after Sunday’s mass shooting, according to a new poll.

Clinton’s edge over Trump has dropped 3.6 points since the massacre in Orlando, according to the Reuters survey out Friday.

Friday’s results found that 10.7 points separate Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, from Trump, her GOP counterpart.

Reuters said Clinton boasted a 14.3-point gap last Sunday, the day of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Pollsters found 45.5 percent of voters now support Clinton, while 34.8 percent back Trump and 19.7 percent pick neither.

Clinton last Sunday registered 46.6 percent before the bloodshed at Pulse nightclub, versus Trump’s 32.3 percent.

Reuters also reported rising enthusiasm for Trump’s temporary ban on Muslim emigration into the U.S. since June started.
