The findings mirror the results of Monday's Iowa Democratic caucus, which Clinton won by less than one percentage point.

Sanders still has a comfortable lead in New Hampshire, just four days away from the state's primary.

The poll was conducted from Feb. 2 to 5, shortly after the Iowa caucuses. It surveyed 512 people and has a margin of error of 5 percent.
