Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads in the Democratic contest in New York by 13 percentage points, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) has lost some ground since last month, according to a Quinnipiac poll released Tuesday.

The poll showed Clinton at 53 percent while Sanders stood at 40 percent. This indicates a slight increase in Clinton’s lead since the previous Quinnipiac poll in March, which showed her at 54 percent to Sanders’ 42 percent.

These results are consistent with nearly all New York polling, which shows Clinton enjoying a comfortable lead that is generally in double digits. Quinnipiac found she largely owes this lead to black voters, 65 percent of whom support her compared to 28 percent who support Sanders.

TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Clinton at 53 percent and Sanders at 40 percent in New York.

The Quinnipiac poll was carried out from April 6-11 by live telephone interview. Pollsters surveyed 860 people likely to vote in the Democratic primary, with a margin of error of 3.3 percentage points.
