Sanders Erases Clinton Lead in Nevada, New Poll Finds

February 12, 2016

Nevadans may be 'Feeling the Bern' after the Vermont Senator's strong performance in New Hampshire earlier this week. In a new Nevada survey conducted by TargetPoint, Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are tied at 45%. This is the first Nevada poll since late December, when Gravis Marketing found Clinton ahead by 23 points. 

While we'd like to see more polls confirm this, long-time Nevada political expert Jon Ralston says the results look pretty reasonable.

The Nevada Democratic caucuses are on February 20.
