HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — A new poll from Quinnipiac University shows Hillary Clinton’s lead is shrinking in Connecticut.

In a survey of Connecticut voters, the poll shows Clinton has 37 percent support, down from 53 percent back in March. Bernie Sanders comes in the polls at 25 percent.

On the Republican side of the aisle, Donald Trump leads with 34 percent among Connecticut Republicans. Dr. Ben Carson comes in second with 14 percent.

Even though he has not thrown his hat in the race yet, Vice-President Joe Biden pulls in 18 percent in Connecticut. A podium is at the ready in Las Vegas should Biden appear at the Democratic Debate Tuesday night.
