A majority of Democratic voters think surging Sen. Bernie Sanders has a serious shot at being the party's standard bearer, a new poll shows.

The Rasmussen Reports survey released Tuesday finds 51 percent of Democrats think the Vermont lawmaker is at least "somewhat likely" — and 13 percent say "very likely" — to get the party's presidential nomination.

The poll finds 11 percent of Democratic voters thinks the prospect of Sanders as the party's standard-bearer is "not at all likely."

Among all likely voters, 49 percent consider a Sanders nod for the nomination likely; 45 percent think a Sanders nomination is not likely and 17 percent consider it "not at all likely," the poll shows.

Among independents, 44 percent think Sanders is the likely nominee of Democrats, while 52 percent of Republican voters say the same.

The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points.

Sanders trails front-runner Hillary Clinton 52-37 in an averaging of national polls, according to Real Clear Politics

He's 14 points ahead of Clinton, however, in the averaging of polls in New Hampshire, where the state's primary will be held Feb. 9, and trailing her by less than a point in Iowa, which has caucuses on Feb. 1, according to the RCP averaging
