After trailing Secretary Clinton by margins as great as 42 points in polls this week, a new poll shows him in front in Illinois.

The CBS News/YouGov poll, the most recent one out of Illinois, has Sanders ahead of Secretary Clinton by two points.

He leads the former Secretary of State 48 to 46 per cent.

It’s important to note that another poll released today out of Illinois has him trailing by six points, but this poll was conducted a few days earlier, and has a smaller sample size.

The polling trend here is reminiscent of what happened in Michigan, where Sanders trailed by double digit margins, until he won on primary day by just less than two points.
