Hillary Clinton’s double-digit lead over Donald Trump is holding steady in the new Reuters/Ipsos tracking poll released Friday. 
{mosads}The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee leads Trump by an 11-point margin — 46 percent to 35 percent — just days after she won enough delegates to secure the nomination. 
But 19 percent of people polled said they don’t currently support either candidate, so there’s significant room for both improve their numbers. 
Clinton held at 8-point lead midweek, according to the organizations’ daily tracking poll, before ticking back up a few points.
Clinton’s lead comes thanks in part to one of the best weeks of her campaign: On top of clinching the nomination, she won endorsements from President Obama, Vice President Biden and influential progressive Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). 
Trump, on the other hand, has faced significant blowback after criticizing a federal judge, whom the presumptive GOP nominee claimed is unable to rule fairly in a fraud trial against Trump University because of his Mexican heritage. 
Reuters and Ipsos surveyed 1,276 respondents between Monday and Friday in an online poll that has a 3.2 percentage point margin of error.
