The Democrat and former Secretary of State is ahead ofTrump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, by 12 points, results of a new Bloomberg Politics poll shows. Clinton leads Trump 49% to 37% among likely voters in November’s election.

Just nineteen percent of those polled believe the U.S. is on the right track. Still, President Barack Obama’s job approval rating stood at 51%.

The poll was conducted Friday through Monday and includes interviews with 1,000 people, including 750 who said they’re likely to vote in November’s general election, according to Bloomberg. The poll’s margin of error is plus or minus 3.6% on questions involving likely voters. It is plus or minus 3.1% for those asked of all adults.
