Hillary Clinton’s Lead Over Bernie Sanders Fades in New National Poll

Jan 12, 2016

Hillary Clinton’s national advantage in the Democratic primary over rival Bernie Sanders is slipping, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News poll released Tuesday.

She received 48% of Democratic primary voters' support across the country, while 41 percent favor Sanders, poll results show. Earlier on Tuesday, Sanders overtook Clinton with a five-point lead in the early voting state of Iowa, according to a Quinnipiac University survey of likely caucus-goers.

Primary voters under 45 support the Vermont senator by a roughly 2-to-1 ratio, the survey has found. However, more than 7 in 10 Democratic voters, including most of Sanders’ supporters, still say Clinton will win the Democratic primary.

The national Times/CBS News poll was conducted Jan. 7 through 10 and included 442 Republican primary voters and 389 Democratic primary voters. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 6 points for both Democratic and Republican primary voters.
