Can a slow speedometer underestimate odometer's reading of miles? What causes the underestimated mph?

My speedometer is reading roughly 10mph too slow; it seems to stay about that at all speeds, but I'm not 100% sure. Cruise control is working and everything else seems to be fine. The trip odometer is working accurately, however, I have not noticed whether the odometer is recording accurately. What would cause the slow speedometer and could it affect the odometers overall reading?
