Sanders has heavily campaigned in Massachusetts ahead of Tuesday, holding rallies in both Boston and Springfield

Although a victory for Warren in her home state is far from assured, supporters have said a loss need not be the end of the line for the Massachusetts senator.

“It comes down to not who is winning how many states, but how many delegates you are getting in each state,” Boston City Councilor Michelle Wu, who has endorsed Warren, told the Globe. “There’s not a must-win state for anyone.”

The poll was conducted among 500 likely voters Wednesday through Saturday with live callers surveying respondents on landlines and cellphones.
