Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are neck and neck in a new national poll as the two hopefuls for the Democratic presidential nomination barrel toward the next primary contests in Nevada and South Carolina.

Clinton takes 44% to Sanders’ 42% in the Quinnipiac poll released Wednesday morning, with 11% undecided. The two compete next in Nevada’s Democratic caucuses on Saturday, and face each other in the South Carolina primary on Feb. 27. On the Republican side, Donald Trump is far ahead, with 39% — his highest total so far. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio is in second place with 19%.

Clinton holds an edge among women, but Sanders tops the former secretary of state among voters younger than 55.
