Furthermore, 13 percent said they would vote for a third-party candidate, while seven percent remained undecided.

The most recent Fox News poll — conducted from May 14-17 — had Trump leading Clinton by two percent, and Rasmussen attributes his growing lead to the list of potential Supreme Court Justice nominees he released earlier Wednesday. (RELATED: Fox News Gives Trump 2 Point Lead)
