Donald Trump edges out Hillary Clinton by 3 percentage points in a hypothetical general election match-up, according to a new Fox News poll.

The former secretary of State also holds commanding leads Trump among blacks (90 to 7 percent) and Hispanics (62 to 23 percent).

The poll surveyed 1,021 registered voters from May 14-17. It has a margin of error of 3 points.
