The poll shows Clinton favored by 52 percent of likely voters compared with 42 percent for Sanders, down from 55-35 percent in March.

Among likely Republican voters, the Siena poll shows New York City businessman Donald Trump backed by 50 percent, followed by 27 percent for Ohio Gov. John Kasich and 17 percent for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz.

In the March poll, Trump had 45 percent, Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio each had 18 percent and Cruz 11 percent.
