DOUBLE DIGITS: Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 10 points in new Fox News poll

Hillary Clinton took a double-digit lead over Donald Trump in a Fox News poll released Wednesday.

The poll showed Clinton with a 10-point lead over Trump, with 49% of 1,022 registered voters saying they back the Democratic nominee.

It was conducted by telephone and with live interviewers July 31 to August 2 and had a margin of error of 3 points.

The Fox News survey is the latest in a slew of polls showing Clinton with a notable bump in the polls following the Democratic National Convention last week. Surveys conducted by CNN and CBS News both showed Clinton taking the lead after Trump’s brief poll dominance following the Republican National Convention in July.

The survey also showed the unpopularity of the Republican nominee’s recent scuffles in the media, particularly Trump’s feud with the father of a Muslim American soldier killed in Iraq.

According to Fox, 69% of survey respondents who were aware of Trump’s comments about Khizr Khan disapproved of Trump’s response. Khan questioned Trump’s knowledge of the US Constitution, citing the real-estate magnate’s proposal to ban Muslims from entering the US, inspiring Trump to question Khan’s relationship with his wife.
