Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a wide lead in the Democratic contest for New York, beating out Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) by 14 percentage points, according to an NBC/WSJ/Marist poll released Monday.

The poll showed support for Clinton at 55 percent, while Sanders stood at 41 percent. This is the first NBC/WSJ/Marist poll conducted in New York in this election cycle, but its results correspond closely to those of other polls, which have shown Clinton enjoying a double-digit lead with more than 50 percent support.

Both candidates claim New York as their home state – Clinton served as its senator and Sanders was born in Brooklyn. The candidates’ rhetoric has grown more personal as they have competed for its votes.

TPM’s PollTracker Average shows Clinton at 53.5 percent and Sanders at 39.2 percent.

The NBC/WSJ/Marist Poll was carried out from April 6-10 by live telephone interview. Pollsters surveyed 557 people likely to vote in the Democratic primary, with a margin of error of 4.2 percentage points.
