Bernie Sanders remains in front on the eve of the Nevada caucuses, with a 13 point lead in the final Emerson poll in the state.

Sanders was the first choice of 30 percent of survey respondents. 17 percent said they would vote for Pete Buttigieg, while Joe Biden followed closely at 16 percent. Amy Klobuchar and Tom Steyer polled 11 percent and 10 percent respectively, while no other candidate reached double digit support in the survey.

Sanders leads among both white and non-white voters, and wins a majority of voters aged under 50 in the survey. Support for the Vermont Senator has increased 11 points since the last Emerson poll in the Silver State in November, while Joe Biden has seen a 14 point plunge.

The Emerson College poll of likely Democratic caucusgoers was conducted between February 19 and 20.

With just one day to go until the caucuses on Saturday, Sanders has a 73 percent chance of winning the most votes in Nevada, according to the FiveThirtyEight Democratic primary forecast.
