Clinton leads Trump 54 percent to 29 percent in the Democracy Corps/Women’s Voices Women Vote Action Fund survey out Friday.

The poll is roughly in line with other surveys of millennial voters that have spurred anxiety among Clinton allies, as she appears to be underperforming with the demographic compared to how President Obama fared in 2012.

Pollsters found that Clinton’s lead grows by 1 point in a two-way race between her and Trump, however. The Democratic presidential nominee leads the Republican nominee 60 percent to 34 percent in that scenario.

Sixty-two percent of the millennials polled said there is “a real difference” between Clinton and Trump, versus 38 percent who do not see a difference.

Democracy Corps/Women’s Voices Women Vote conducted its latest sampling of 1,000 likely millennial voters via online interviews from Oct. 1 to 4. It has a margin of error of 3.1 percentage points. The two groups defined “millennial” as any respondent born in 1980 or later. 

The poll respondents were located in 11 battleground states: Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Wisconsin.

Sanders late last month predicted the voting bloc would ultimately rally around Clinton, his former rival.

“I think that a lot of the younger people are concerned about the cost of college, concerned about climate change, concerned about women’s rights, [and] they’re going to come on board Secretary Clinton’s campaign,” he told MSNBC on Sept. 26.

“Add to that the fact that Donald Trump’s position on climate change — where he thinks it’s a hoax — is totally absurd,” Sanders added of the GOP presidential nominee.

Clinton leads Trump by about 5 points nationwide, according to the latest RealClearPolitics average of polls.
