New Polling Indicates Tied Race Between Hillary Clinton And Bernie Sanders In Nevada
After a dearth of polling in Nevada, a new poll taken of Democratic Nevada caucus-goers shows Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders in a tight race - 45%-45% - ahead of the February 20th caucuses.
However, it should be noted the survey was paid for by the very conservative Free Beacon; and some of the questions were clearly framed as "anti-Hillary" in nature, such a:
• Recently several news organizations have reported that the FBI could indict Hillary Clinton over her handling of her email server. How concerned are you that she could actually face such an indictment?
• Hillary Clinton supported the Wall Street bailout and big banks have given her over $1.6 million dollars in campaign contributions and speaking fees. Does this make you more or less likely to support her?
You see where this is going, right? So, I'd take the results with a grain of salt.
The poll was conducted by TargetPoint of 1,236 potential Nevada caucusgoers from Feb. 8-10, with a margin of error just under 3 percent.
See the results of the poll below.
