That said, given the past few months of headlines, the fact that Clinton is even close to Sanders on trust is surprising. We've written about Clinton's drooping numbers on trustworthiness. Among all voters in our poll last month, 56 percent found her to be untrustworthy.
Among Democrats, though? Different picture.
What's particularly interesting is that the numbers on trust have a stark divide. White voters are far more likely to view Clinton as less trustworthy than Sanders, and non-white voters are far more likely to view Sanders as less trustworthy.
This split along racial lines is not new. It's also not only seen in the numbers on trust. If you compare attitudes about each candidate by racial group to the overall numbers, you can see that non-white voters are more likely to prefer Clinton and Joe Biden -- and are more likely to see Clinton as being closer to them on issues.
It remains the case that Sanders very much needs to improve his numbers among non-white voters if he wants to gain more ground on Clinton. It's possible that this survey reflects a lack of familiarity with Sanders. It is also possible that the party is polarized along racial lines in a way that it will be very hard for Sanders to overcome.
