Although the gap between the candidates narrowed to 9 percentage points immediately following the deadly Orlando, Florida, nightclub shooting, Clinton's lead widened as news broke about Trump's campaign deficit. According to a Federal Election Commission filing on Monday, Trump's campaign has $1.3 million in the bank. The number lags significantly behind Clinton's campaign, which has $42 million in the bank as of May 31, according to FEC filings.

Reuters reported that 1,201 likely voters participated in the online poll, which has a 3.3 percent margin of error.
