According to a recent Reuters/Ipsos poll, Bernie Sanders is beating Hillary Clinton with a one-point lead among registered Democratic voters. This new poll is bound to affect Tuesday’s New York primary.

Although he is leading amongst Democratic voters, Sanders remains around 200 pledged delegates behind Clinton. His focus will be to narrow that gap even more as this coming week’s primaries begin. New York, Connecticut, Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island are the states up next in these primary elections.

“We are going to win some states, we are going to lose some states,” Sanders asserted. “Let’s kind of look at the longterm thing … look at the polls, and state-by-state you know what you are seeing, the gaps are narrowing. Clinton is still in the lead, but her lead is narrowing path to victory.”

A Quinnipiac national poll and Fox News poll are also showing Sanders in the lead.
