Clinton Holds 15-Point Lead on Sanders Nationally

As the election cycle heats up, Hillary Clinton has managed to defeat Bernie Sanders in a national poll by 15 points, according to NBC News/Survey Monkey.

Clinton managed to net 52 percent of the vote to Sander’s 37 percent.

The Hill reports:

About 8 percent do not know which Democratic contender they will back. Another 1 percent have no answer.

Tuesday’s results show that Democrats are relatively adamant about the candidate they are supporting in their party’s primary.

About 51 percent say they are “absolutely certain,” while another 31 percent state there is a “large chance” they have their contender.

Approximately 15 percent are 50-50, pollsters discovered, while 3 percent said there is a “small chance” they are decided and 1 percent have no answer.

NBC News and Survey Monkey surveyed 2,619 registered Democratic voters from Jan. 4 to 10, with a 2.4 percent margin of error.

Clinton leads Sanders by roughly 13 percent nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls. He remains competitive with a 4.3 percent lead in New Hampshire, according to an index of Granite State polls.
