A Washington Free Beacon/TargetPoint Consulting poll released Friday shows between Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sander (I-VT) in Nevada. It’s the first poll conducted in the state this year.
The poll showed support for Clinton and Sanders tied at 45 percent of respondents.
This is the first poll of Democratic voters in the state by this pollster, as well as the first conducted there since December. Most previous polling showed Clinton holding a double-digit lead in the state, indicating a collapse in her support consistent with the rapid tightening of the race following Clinton’s narrow win in Iowa and substantial loss in New Hampshire.
There has been so little polling in Nevada that there is no TPM PollTracker Average for the state.
The poll was carried out from Feb. 8-10 with a population sample of 1,236 likely Democratic voters and a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
