WASHINGTON, June 17 (UPI) -- Presumptive presidential nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are at their most disliked point since their campaigns began, though the real estate mogul has a 15-point higher unfavorable rating than his opponent.
The national poll, conducted by Langer Research for ABC News and The Washington Post, shows 70 percent of U.S. voters hold a somewhat or strongly unfavorable view of Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee. For Clinton, 55 percent view her in the same light.
Trump's unfavorable rating went up 10 points since the last survey was completed in May, shortly after he secured the Republican nomination. Clinton's unfavorable rating increased by 2 points in the same time period.
Both candidates' ratings are records for a major party nominee in the history of the poll, which dates back to 1984.
The ABC News/Washington Post poll did not query voters on who they will vote for, but the Real Clear Politics polling average shows Clinton with an overall lead of 5.8 percentage points nationally, with none of the past five national polls showing Trump holding the horserace lead.
While the 70 percent unfavorable rating is a record, the gap between those who most like him and those who most dislike him is equally as significant.
The so-called "strength of sentiment" rating for Trump -- the difference between those who rate him strongly favorable and those who rate him strongly unfavorable -- is a 41-point negative gap. That is to say, 56 percent of voters in the poll said they hold a strongly unfavorable of view Trump compared to 15 percent who said they hold a strongly favorable view of him.
Comparably, while Clinton is still viewed unfavorably by a majority of Americans, her strength of sentiment gap is 14 percent in the negative, with 39 percent strongly unfavorable and 25 percent strongly favorable.
The poll was conducted from June 8-12, almost entirely before news of the Orlando nightclub shooting that killed 49 people, and Trump's renewed call to temporarily ban Muslims from entering the country.
The poll surveyed 1,000 people and has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
