Notably, 39 percent of surveyed likely voters said they could still change their mind about who they vote for.

Massachusetts is one of the 14 states that will hold its primary on Super Tuesday, March 3.

Sanders has found success in the first two nominating contests, virtually tying for first in the Iowa caucuses with Buttigieg and then winning New Hampshire outright. He's also the favorite to win in Saturday's Nevada caucuses.

Warren finished third in Iowa and fourth in New Hampshire, but received a fundraising boost Wednesday as a result of her strong primary debate performance in Las Vegas.

The poll was conducted Feb. 12-19 and surveyed 450 likely Democratic primary voters in Massachusetts. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 6.1 percentage points.
