Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton has opened up a double-digit lead over Republican rival Donald Trump, according to a Bloomberg poll released late Tuesday.

Contrary to the belief that the recent Orlando terrorist attack perpetrated by a Daesh member would give the real estate mogul a rise in votes, the survey revealed that the incident has had little direct impact on the 2016 race.

Some 49 percent of likely voters said they supported Clinton, while 37 percent said they supported Trump, and another 10 percent said they would not support either, according to the survey of 750 people conducted between June 10 and 13. In the survey, four percent of likely voters said they were not sure.
