A brand new Bloomberg poll released today shows Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton in a virtual tie nationally.

The Bloomberg poll of likely voters shows 49 per cent support Sanders, and 48 per cent support Clinton, putting them in a virtual tie.

The poll also showed that Bernie Sanders is the better candidate for a general election, as he would defeat every Republican candidate by larger margins than Hillary Clinton.

Sanders would defeat Trump by 24 points, Cruz by 12 points and John Kasich by 4 points. Meanwhile, Clinton’s lead over Trump and Cruz is much tighter, and she trails John Kasich in hypothetical match ups.

The overall sample has a margin of error of plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, while the subgroup of 311 Democratic primary voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.6 percentage points.
