The Reuters poll, which was released on Friday shows only a eight point margin between the two Democrat hopefuls nationally.
Clinton now only leads nationally among Democrats 39% to 31%. The poll shows strong growth for Sanders in the past week, as Clinton has fallen nearly six points in that same time period, perhaps due to increasing concerns among Democrats surrounding her use of a private email server during her time as Secretary of State.
Meanwhile, Sanders has growing his campaign in Iowa, and now turns his sights on South Carolina, where he will tour the state again, this time with Dr. Cornel West.
The questions surrounding Vice President Joe Biden’s potential Democrat run have kept him steadily polling at around 15%. No other Democrat contender is polling above 2% in the poll.
The Reuters/Ipsos poll surveyed 668 Democrats from September 7th through the 11th and has a margin of error of 4.4%.
