Clinton led Sanders by 13 points in the last Morning Consult poll of the race before New Hampshire. She slid 4 points, and Sanders gained two points.

Eight percent of those polled want “someone else,” pollsters added, while 7 percent “don’t know” or had “no opinion.”

Morning Consult conducted its latest poll of 811 Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters Feb. 10–11. It has a 3.4 percentage point margin of error.
