Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leads by 13 percentage points in the race for the Democratic nomination in Michigan, according to a Monmouth poll released Monday.

The poll showed support for Clinton at 55 percent, while Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) stood at 42 percent. This is consistent with most polling of the state, which has shown Michigan voters heavily favor Clinton, usually by a margin of more than 10 percentage points.

TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Clinton at 60.1 percent in the state, followed by Sanders at 37.1 percent.

The Monmouth poll was carried out by live telephone interview from March 3-6. Pollsters surveyed 302 people likely to vote in the Democratic primary, with a margin of error of 5.6 percentage points.
