The latest polling results released by IBD/TIPP show that this is the closest that the Democratic Nomination has been yet, with Hillary only holding a 4% lead over Sanders.
Hillary Clinton, who at one time held a lead over Sanders by 60 points in a poll released by NBC in June, finds herself in a very vulnerable position with roughly 3 weeks to go before the election officially kicks off in Iowa.

The highest that Bernie Sanders has polled nationally is 39%, which he has done in the last two polls released.
The rise in Sanders nationally parallels what we have been seeing in New Hampshire and Iowa. In New Hampshire, Bernie Sanders even holds a 13% lead over Clinton and seems to have all of the momentum on his side heading into February.
Will Bernie Sanders overcome Hillary Clinton in the race for the 2016 Democratic Nomination? Nobody can say for sure, but it's interesting to note that Bernie Sanders has a lot higher favorability ranking than Clinton with all Americans, regardless of party affiliation.
