Hillary Clinton's once substantial lead over Bernie Sanders has evaporated to just two points in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, a NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll reveals.

According to the poll released Monday, Democratic primary voters have ranked both candidates this way:
  • Clinton — 50 percent
  • Sanders — 48 percent
Just a month ago, Clinton led Sanders by nine points, 53-44 percent.

The national results come as polls in the Tuesday's New York primary show Clinton leading the Vermont senator in delegates and the popular vote.

The NBC/WSJ poll was bad news for Clinton in other categories as well. It shows her leading Sanders by 15 points among women, 57-42 percent — but that figure is down from the 20-point lead she had earlier this year. 

She also leads Sanders among minorities, 59-41 percent — but that's a decline from her 30-point-plus advantage in past NBC/WSJ surveys.

The poll, conducted among 339 Democratic primary voters from April 10 to 14, has a margin of error of plus-minus 5.3 percentage points.
