(AP Photo/Evan Vucci)A new survey we conducted in conjunction with Survey Monkey has found that a slight plurality, though far from a majority, of cannabis consumers who are likely to vote in the upcoming election support Hillary Clinton for president. Governor Gary Johnson came in a close second (close enough to be within the margin of error), with Donald Trump and Dr. Jill Stein falling not far behind (though outside of the margin of error).

According to the poll, 29.4% of likely voters who consume cannabis at least once a month support Hillary Clinton, who won the plurality of the vote. Gary Johnson received 26.3% support, with Trump coming in third with 24%. Stein finished last among the group, but not by far, garnering 20.2% support.

Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders are in a statistical tie nationwide according to a new Quinnipiac University poll. The poll is huge news for Sanders and his supporters, as the same poll had him trailing 30% to Clinton’s 61% the last time it was conducted in December. The poll was released just days after Clinton and Sanders finished in a near tie in the Iowa caucus, with Clinton winning narrowly (49.9% to 49.6%).

According to the poll, 44% of Democratic primary voters support Clinton, with 42% in support of Sanders. With the margin of error at +/- 4.5%, meaning it could swing either way, the two are in a statistical tie. 14% of voters are currently undecided, indicating that the nomination is entirely up in the air at the moment.
