The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll shows former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton increasing her lead to the tune of 2-1 over Democratic rival Sen. Bernie Sanders.
In the new poll, conducted Oct. 25-29, 62% of Democrats chose Clinton as their top choice to win their party’s presidential nomination, while 31% picked Sanders. Former Maryland governor Martin O’Malley received just 3% support.
That’s up from Clinton’s 25-point lead earlier in October, 58% to 33%.
Eighty-four percent of Dems see Clinton as the eventual nominee; only 12% expect Sanders to secure the nomination
