    Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton tops her rival, US Senator Bernie Sanders, by 14 percent among likely voters in New Jersey’s Democratic primary, according to the poll.

    NEW YORK (Sputnik) — Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton maintains a double digit lead over her rival, US Senator Bernie Sanders, in the US state of New Jersey ahead of the state’s June 7 primary election, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Thursday.

    "Clinton tops (Sanders) 54-40 percent among likely voters in New Jersey’s Democratic primary," the poll states.

    The poll also found that Sanders has an advantage among New Jersey voters against the presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump of 49-37 percent. Clinton leads Trump 45-38 percent in New Jersey, according to the poll.

    "Bernie Sanders hangs in there, but New Jersey looks solid for Secretary Hillary Clinton in the June 7 Democratic primary," Quinnipiac University Poll Assistant Director Maurice Carroll noted.

    Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,989 New Jersey voters from May 10-16 to conduct the survey.
