Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has a 13-point lead over rival Bernie Sanders in California, according to a new Hoover Institution Golden State poll.
Clinton has 51 percent support among likely Democratic primary voters to 38 percent for Sanders.
Sanders has the edge among younger voters. He got 61 percent of voters under 30 years old in the poll, to 30 percent for Clinton.
And among voters with “no party preference,” Sanders leads by 40 points.
In a possible general election match-up, Clinton leads presumptive GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump 45 percent to 33 percent, with Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson taking 4 percent.
The survey was conducted among 1,700 Californians May 4–16. The margin of error is 3.47 percentage points.
According to the RealClearPolitics average of polls, Clinton has an 8-point lead over Sanders in California.
But one recent poll showed her with just a 2-point lead in the Golden State.
Clinton is expected to add more campaign stops in California ahead of the primary next week.
Sanders has said he plans to remain in the race until the Democratic National Convention in July and will fight for every delegate possible. He said he expects to do well in delegate-rich California and has vowed to stay in despite Clinton’s delegate lead.
