Hillary Clinton's once substantial lead over Bernie Sanders has evaporated to just two points in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll reveals.

According to the poll released Monday, Democratic primary voters have ranked both candidates this way:

Clinton — 50 percent
Sanders — 48 percent

Just a month ago, Clinton led Sanders by nine points, 53-44 percent.

The national results come as polls in the Tuesday's New York primary show Clinton leading the Vermont senator in delegates and the popular vote.

The NBC/WSJ poll was bad news for Clinton in other categories as well. It shows her leading Sanders by 15 points among women, 57-42 percent — but that figure is down from the 20-point lead she had earlier this year.

Good thing she has already bought those super-delegates, The Bern would be nominee if she didn't have them.

Superdelegates have nothing to do with the current situation. Nor does a national poll. The fact is, pledge delegates are what matters at this point, and Clinton has, and will continue to have, a significant lead in pledge delegates. "The Bern" would not be the nominee, even if he had all the superdelegates, at this point.

Politics seems to have made strange bedfellows of Bernie and a many "conservative" or "very conservative" observers.

Why are those folks pulling so hard for him? Hmm!

If I was less charitable, I would say fear of Clinton. Sanders is fairly easy to run against. Not really well known, so it is easy to define him in negative ways, and with his self identifying with a tag that contains the word "socialist", that definition is going to scare alot of people. Conversely, every one knows who Clinton is and pretty much has made up their mind about her. How do you run against some one who people have made up their minds about?

superdelegates won't matter. They will go with the pledged delegate winner.

Are you that unaware of the difference between a primary and a general election? Hint: I was talking about the general election, which is different than the primary poll you posted...

you said he is easy to run against. Just responding to your own words.

Responding to my words, ignoring the context of those words where used in. A really cheap trick.

Cheap trick? So the context then is "bernie is easy to run against in the general election but tough to run against in a primary?"

He has not been terribly tough in the primary, but it was tougher. And if you can't be bothered to read a conversation, and full posts, you have to expect to look silly when you entirely fail to understand what was being said. I am sorry you ****ed up so badly, but it was your own fault.

I don't understand why you are getting so pissy. You aren't a bernie fan, you've kind of made that clear. You said he was easy to beat, I challenge you on that and you lose you temper.

I think the issue I have is you took a sentence out of context so you could argue against it. In context, you would have had a much harder time. It is a dishonest method of debate.

Thanks for sharing that trivia with us. Like most trivia, however, it only has meaning to trivia buffs. The "bern" has cooled down and the fire it out...

This game is over: its Trump v Clinton.
