>> A big jump for Hillary Clinton in this week's Reuters episode's poll. I'm Chris Khan polling editor. Our numbers on Friday showed Hillary Clinton ahead of Donald Trump by about 11 percentage points. Clinton has been leading Trump for the most part this year. But just recently in May, Trump really kind of evened things out.
00:00:17
They're essentially tied right after His remaining GOP rivals dropped out as Republicans started to get in line behind Trump's campaign. This was really a real feel good moment for Donald Trump. But that really hasn't been sustained. Ever since the past few weeks we've seen Donald Trump really kind of deal with a lot of criticisms.
00:00:35
Hillary Clinton is calling him out on his foreign policy agenda. We're seeing a newspaper report talking about maybe he didn't contribute to some veterans groups like he said he did, and we're seeing this lingering Trump University issue. We're seeing his numbers go down, his unfavorability ratings go up and so this is all something he's been having to deal with for the past few weeks.
00:00:55
There's are some late breaking things that happened this week that may effect things the poll going down the road. How Speaker, Paul Ryan, has come out and supported Donald Trump and that really could pay some dividends down the road for him. There's still about one in five likely voters who are staying on the sidelines.
00:01:12
So, right now, they're not picking either Trump or Clinton. But of those folks who are not picking either of them, we ask them which way they are leaning and many of those are also leaning towards Hillary Clinton as well. So some really good numbers for Hillary Clinton this week.
