The former secretary of State now trails Sanders by only 15 points before the Tuesday primary. She trailed by 31 points at the beginning of the week.

Sanders holds 55 percent support in the state, down 3 points from Thursday in the daily poll, compared to Clinton’s 40 percent support, which is up by 4 points overnight.

The Vermont senator still has overwhelming support among young voters, racking up 89 percent among 18- to 29-year-old demographic and 72 percent support from the 30–39 age group. 

The poll also tracked hypothetical presidential trial heats between the leading Democratic and Republican primary candidates in the state.

Sanders defeated Donald Trump by 19 points, Ted Cruz by 21 points and Marco Rubio by 14 points.

Clinton also defeated Trump by a 4-point margin and Cruz by a 3-point margin, but she trails Rubio in the traditionally blue state by 3 points.

The tracking poll surveyed 434 likely Democratic primary voters and has a margin of error of 5.24 percent.
