A new poll on the Nevada caucuses shows Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in almost a dead heat in the state.

Clinton held 48% of Democratic support compared to Sanders’ 47%, the new CNN/ORC International Poll found. On the Republican side, Trump held 45% of support, followed by Marco Rubio with 19% and Ted Cruz with 17%; the rest of the candidates ranked in the single digits.

The poll consisted of interviews with 1,006 Nevadans from Feb. 10 to 15, including 245 likely Republican caucus-goers and 282 likely Democratic caucus-goers—on the smaller side of sample sizes.

The Republican response had a sampling error of +/- 6.5 percentage points, and the Democratic response had a sampling error of +/- 6 percentage points. The Democratic caucus will take place in Nevada on Saturday, and the Republicans will caucus on Tuesday.
