According to the results of a new national NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released Tuesday, Hillary Clinton’s lead in the Democratic race for the nomination has grown only wider.
Clinton picked up 49 percent, while Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders Picked up about 29 percent and Vice President Joe Biden, who has not announced whether he will run for presidency, took in just 15 percent. The numbers would appear to suggest that the former secretary of state(Hillary Clinton) is the only candidate who benefited from last week’s Las Vegas debate. It’s a decrease of 6 points from last month for Sanders.
In a new ABC News/Washington Post poll that was released on Tuesday as well, Clinton took 54 percent, while Sanders earned 23 percent and Biden also got 16 percent. In that poll, it’s a 12-point increase from last month for Clinton.
The NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll was conducted Oct. 15-18, surveying 400 voters who said they are likely going to vote in the Democratic primary. The margin of error is plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. For the ABC News/Washington Post poll, 444 registered voters who preferred Democratic were surveyed, with a margin of error of plus or minus 5.5 percentage points.
