Most voters want Democratic presidential underdog Sen. Bernie Sanders to stick it out in the party's primary contest with front-runner Hillary Clinton, a new poll shows.
According to the Morning Consult survey
released Wednesday 57 percent said the Vermont lawmaker should stay in the race, compared with 28 percent who said he should drop out and 15 percent who didn't know or had no opinion.
The breakdown holds even along party lines: 57 percent of Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents think Sanders should hang in the race, while 55 percent of Republicans and 60 percent of independents agree.
Sanders' continued challenge comes as GOP presumptive nominee Donald Trump is beginning to increase his polling against Clinton
; the Morning Call survey shows Clinton edging him out 42 percent o 39 percent.
The survey's margin of error is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
