Sanders and Clinton in nationwide dead heat

Bernie Sanders has closed the gap nationwide, and is now trailing Hillary Clinton by just 2 points nationally, according to a new poll released Wednesday.

A new Quinnipiac poll released this morning shows the two Democrats in a neck-and-neck race, with Clinton leading Sanders 44 to 42 per cent. 13 per cent said they were undecided.

The poll of 563 likely Democratic voters has a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points, putting the candidates in a statistical tie.

While 83 percent of respondents said Clinton has a good shot of winning in a general election 69 percent said the same for Sanders.

“Sen. Bernie Sanders and Secretary Hillary Clinton are neck and neck. But while Bernie has the trust, Hillary has the experience. Two different measurements of two dissimilar candidates,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
