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.
