Bernie Sanders has a significant double-digit lead over Hillary Clinton in New Hampshire, according to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll, NBC News reported.

Sanders has the support of 58 percent of likely Democratic primary voters, compared to 38 percent for Clinton.

“So far in New Hampshire, it’s all Sanders as Clinton faces an uphill fight,” says pollster Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion.

The numbers come out before Thursday night’s debate on MSNBC, the first one-on-one encounter between the two candidates. Martin O’Malley dropped out of the race on Monday.
