The new Field Poll found that Clinton is currently leading Trump by 58 to 28 percent, a news agency reported. When Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson is factored into the poll, Clinton topped Trump by 24 points, 50 to 26 percent, with Johnson receiving 14 percent.

The poll also found that she won the support of 16 percent Republicans. Trump only got the backing of 5 percent of Democrats. Trump told Republican senators yesterday during a private meeting on Capitol Hill that he would expand the map of battleground states but will not ignore safe Democratic states like California.

The latest installment of the Field Poll was conducted between June 8 and July 2 through telephone interviews in English and Spanish with 956 potential California voters. The survey has a margin of error of plus/minus 4.4 percentage points.
