Clinton added 4 points while Sanders lost 3 points among registered Democrats in the latest NBC News/SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll.

The former secretary of State has 55 percent support in the online poll, compared to 38 percent for Sanders.

Pollsters noted the shift is the first large movement in the poll since its launch in early January.

Clinton has also gained support among voters between the ages of 25 and 34, according to the poll, and now trails by just 2 points in that voting bloc. Sanders continues to dominate among voters between the ages of 18 and 24, however.

Pollsters surveyed 21,996 adults online, of which 19,051 said they were registered to vote.
