A second poll, conducted by NBC News/Wall Street Journal, on Tuesday showed Clinton ahead by nine, with 53 to Sanders’ 44 percent.

The ABC survey, which sampled random adults from March 3-6, found that Sanders “continues to draw strongly from younger adults,” with Clinton losing 13 points in that demographic since January. Sanders has also gained 16 points among men since January, while Clinton lost 12 points, marking “the first time in ABC/Post polls that [Sanders’] led among men.” The results have a margin of sampling error of 3.5 points.
