US Elections: 25% of Voters Undecided

The presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton holds a small 5-point lead over Republican challenger Donald Trump, according to the June CNBC All-American Survey, with a large chunk of the voting public remaining undecided.

The poll of 801 registered voters conducted June 11-14 shows Clinton with a 40 percent to 35 percent lead, but the poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. Pollsters for CNBC say the survey shows a tight race with 25 percent undecided, including 14 percent who right now choose “neither” candidate.

“It’s the hallmark of a campaign with high negatives around these candidates,” said pollster Micah Roberts with Public Opinion Strategies. The poll was conducted by POS from the Republican side and Hart Research Associates from the Democratic side.
