Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is leading his opponent Hillary Clinton in two recent nationwide polls.
A McClatchy/Marist poll was the first to be released this week that showed Bernie Sanders in front, with a small lead of two points.
Another poll released today also reflects Sanders’ new frontrunner status. The The Atlantic/PRRI poll found the independent Vermont Senator to have a one point lead across the country.
It’s also important, however, not to miss the IBD/TIPP poll, which showed Clinton with a slight one point lead, however this poll had a much greater margin of error, and a small sample size.
These new polls reflect Sanders’ growing momentum, after dominating the most recent primaries and caucuses, winning some states like Alaska, Washington and Hawaii in landslide victories.
