Poll: Clinton Lead Narrows in Iowa
The reign of Hillary Clinton is coming to an end as Bernie Sanders breaks down the door in Iowa and levels her lead.
In the latest poll by Bloomberg/Des Moines Register, Clinton secure 42 percent of the vote to Sanders’ 40 percent. The once great lead enjoyed by Clinton has evaporated and is nothing but a memory.
Last month, a Bloomberg/Des Moines Register poll found Clinton was ahead of Sanders by 9 points, 48% to 39%.
In the new poll Thursday, 14% of those surveyed say they are uncommitted. In December, 8% were uncommitted.
Support for the candidates mirrors that in other polls. Sanders is strongest among younger voters, while Clinton is leading with older voters and women.
