The poll showed support for Clinton at 56 percent, easily beating out Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) at 38 percent. Clinton's wide lead is nevertheless substantially reduced since the previous Emerson poll taken in mid-March, which showed her at 71 percent to Sanders’ 23 percent.

TPM’s PollTracker Average in the Empire State shows Clinton at 55 percent and Sanders at 39.7 percent.

The Emerson poll was carried out from April 6-7 using an automated telephone program. Pollsters surveyed 325 voters likely to vote in the Democratic primary, with a margin of error of 5.4 percentage points.
