Clinton, Sanders tied nationally

New Quinnipiac polling released Friday morning shows Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders tied nationally for the Democratic nomination.

A new Quinnipiac poll shows Hillary Clinton leading Bernie Sanders 44 to 42 per cent, well within the margin of error, putting them in a nationwide statistical tie.

The survey of 484 registered voters reduces Clinton’s lead over Sanders by 29 points since Quinnipiac University’s December poll. It also shows Sanders with the highest favorability among candidates on both sides.

“Democrats nationwide are feeling the Bern as Sen. Bernie Sanders closes a 31-point gap to tie Secretary Hillary Clinton,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

The poll found that Bernie Sanders is the stronger candidate in a general election. It comes just days before the New Hampshire primary, where Sanders leads Clinton by 31 points, according to the latest CNN/WMUR poll.
