Sanders, Clinton in Dead Heat Nationwide
Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are locked in tie nationwide, according to the latest Quinnipiac University poll.
Clinton managed to secure 44 percent of the vote to Sander’s 42 percent.
The Hill reports:
The results are unchanged from the poll’s last iteration earlier this month. Eleven percent of Democrats remain undecided in the race.
Sanders is seen as the more trustworthy, honest and empathetic candidate, while Clinton holds advantages in experience and leadership qualities.
Eighty-seven percent of respondents said Sanders is honest and trustworthy, compared to 61 percent who said the same of Clinton.
And 86 percent said Sanders cares about their problems, compared to 78 percent for Clinton.
But 93 percent also said Clinton has the requisite experience to be commander in chief, compared to 74 percent for Sanders.
And 87 percent said the former secretary of State has the leadership qualities that they look for in a candidate, compared to 79 percent for Sanders.
“Sen. Bernie Sanders and Secretary Clinton are neck and neck,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University poll. “But while Bernie has trust, Hillary has the experience.”
“Two different measurements of two dissimilar candidates,” he added.
The Quinnipiac University poll surveyed 563 Democrats from Feb. 10 through 15 and has a margin of error of 4.1 percent.
