The survey revealed that a candidate's ability to handle the economy was "a central division" in the Nevada caucuses.

"Overall, Clinton holds broad advantages as more trusted on foreign policy, race relations, immigration and health care, but likely caucusgoers are split 48 percent for Clinton and 47 percent for Sanders on the economy," CNN reported. "Among those likely caucusgoers who call the economy their top issue in choosing a candidate, more support Sanders: 52 percent back him vs. 43 percent for Clinton."

Clinton has been thought to have a distinct advantage in Nevada, due to a large Hispanic population, but the race has been tightening. The state's caucuses takes place on Saturday, February 20.
