Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump is leading presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by 11 points with Independents, 38 percent to 27 percent, according to a new Morning Consult poll. But he’s still down by two points in a head-to-head match up, 41 percent to 39 percent.

Clinton’s lead increased one point since the last poll, which had Clinton at 42 percent and Trump at 41 percent.

One-fifth of voters say they are undecided.

Twenty-nine percent of the respondents said security issues are at the top of their minds, which is a three point increase from the previous week.

The poll questioned 2,002 voters and has a margin of error of plus or minus two percent.
