“Bush nearly ties when pitted against Vice President Joe Biden, and actually beats handsomely Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders,” the statement said.

Bush leads Clinton among independents by 38 percent to 35 percent.

“This is indeed a competitive race as of now,” Zogby concluded. “After all this time as a potential then real candidate, Mrs. Clinton is showing no real gain or advantage.”

Clinton and Biden both hold 10 point leads against Trump, the poll showed.
