(NEWSER) – Following his decisive victory in the New Hampshire primary this week, Bernie Sanders narrowed the gap between himself and Hillary Clinton in a national poll released Friday, the Hill reports. According to the Morning Consult survey, Clinton has the support of 46% of likely Democratic voters versus Sanders' 39%.
It's the best Sanders has done in the survey to this point, the International Business Times reports; he trailed Clinton by 13 points in the previous Morning Consult survey. But the new survey doesn't take into account what was widely seen as a strong Clinton victory in Thursday night's Democratic debate. Sanders has a 19-point lead over Clinton with voters between the ages of 18 and 29, but is getting crushed by 37 points with black voters.
