Biden leads Sanders among both white voters (50% to 36%) and voters of other races (53% to 36%).

Women prefer Biden to Sanders (53% to 33%), while men prefer Sanders (49% to 39% for Biden).
There are 147 delegates up for grabs in Tuesday’s Michigan primary.
The survey also shows both Democratic White House hopefuls would best Trump today in head-to-head hypothetical match-ups.
Biden has a 48% to 41% lead over Trump, while Sanders has a slightly smaller 46% to 41% margin.
It’s worth remembering that Trump won Michigan by a scant 10,704 votes four years ago.
