Clinton leads the Vermont senator by three points, 48 percent to 45 percent, within the margin of error for the WTHR/HPI poll.

Clinton holds increasing leads over Sanders in both pledged delegates and superdelegates and has been moving to put the race away and pivot to the general election.

Neither candidate has campaigned in the Hoosier State yet as they focus on the five primaries on the East Coast Tuesday.

WTHR says its poll is the first statewide look at Indiana before the state’s May 3 primary, which has 92 delegates at stake. The poll surveyed 500 likely voters from April 18 to 21 and has a 4-point margin of error.
