Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 12 points in the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll.

The results show Clinton with 45 percent nationally, to Trump’s 33 percent.

The poll, which was published Tuesday, doesn’t take the change of leadership in Trump’s campaign and recent messaging and tone into consideration, or Clinton’s alleged pay-to-play relationship with the Clinton Foundation while she was secretary of state, according to the Washington Examiner.

The online poll conducted Aug. 18-22 questioned 1,115 people and has a plus or minus 3 percent margin of error.

Clinton holds a five point lead over Trump, according to the Real Clear Politics polling average.

Political strategist Pat Caddell recently criticized the Reuters polls for being “cooked” to favor Clinton during an appearance on Breitbart News Daily on SiriusXM Patriot Channel 125 with Breitbart editor-in-chief Alex Marlow.
