The most recent RealClearPolitics polling average shows Sanders leading the Democratic pack in the state by 3.7 percent.

The survey comes days before Massachusetts voters head to the polls on Super Tuesday — when an additional 13 other states hold contests. Massachusetts will award 91 pledged delegates. 

The latest polling is likely to be of concern for Warren who finished fourth in neighboring New Hampshire's primary after coming in third in Iowa. The senator finished in fourth place in last week's Nevada caucuses, despite a strong debate performance earlier that week. 

The WBUR poll was conducted Feb. 23-26 among 426 likely voters. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.
