Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) in Nevada has shrunk to just 6 percentage points, according to a Gravis poll released Thursday.
The poll showed support for Clinton at 53 percent, while Sanders stood at 47 percent. This indicates that the race has tightened substantially since the previous Gravis poll of the state in December, which showed Clinton beating Sanders 50 percent to 27 percent.
There is very little recent Nevada polling with which to compare the results, but those polls that are out there have suggested that the race has been narrowing in the weeks leading up to Saturday’s Democratic caucus.
The Gravis Marketing poll, sponsored by One America News Network, was carried out from Feb. 14-15. Pollsters surveyed 516 Democratic likely voters using Interactive Voice Recognition calls, with a margin of error of 4 percentage points.
