Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton has a 7-point lead over Sen. Bernard Sanders of Vermont in a new national poll on the 2016 Democratic presidential field — down from 20 points in a survey released last month.

Mrs. Clinton was at 48 percent in the CBS News/New York Times poll released Tuesday and Mr. Sanders was at 41 percent. A CBS/NYT poll released last month had Mrs. Clinton at 52 percent and Mr. Sanders at 32 percent.

Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was at 2 percent in both surveys.

Mr. Sanders had a 5-point edge among men, while Mrs. Clinton had a 14-point lead among women.

Mr. Sanders also had about a 2-to-1 advantage among voters under the age of 45 and a 15-point edge among liberals, while Mrs. Clinton dominated among people 45 years or older and led by 18 points among moderates.

Seventy-two percent of Democratic primary voters said they expect Mrs. Clinton to be the nominee, compared to 17 percent for Mr. Sanders.
