Sanders trails Clinton by 7 points, 46 percent to 39 percent, in the Morning Consult survey released Friday.

That follows a decisive 22-point victory for Sanders in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday, which Sanders hopes will help him across the country. 

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.
