    Hillary Clinton is increasing her lead among Democrats over Bernie Sanders, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    In the new poll, 62 percent of Democrats chose Clinton as their top pick to win the party's presidential nomination. That’s compared to 31 percent who chose Sanders. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley received only three percent support.

    But the poll also showed that Clinton still remains unpopular among the general electorate (40 percent positive/47 percent negative). And less than a third of Americans give her negative marks for “being honest and straightforward,” NBC News reported.

    There is still a reluctance to put the Benghazi controversy to rest, with only 30 percent saying they’re satisfied that Clinton addressed the issue.
