Bernie Sanders comes into New York with a winning streak of eight of the last nine nominating events, but Hillary Clinton has enjoyed a lead in the majority of early New York polls.

Sanders has argued early polls have understated his support in earlier primaries and caucuses. The Sanders campaign had hoped last week’s debate would help close Clinton’s lead in New York, but the latest polls show Clinton with a double digit lead.

There are 247 delegates at stake in the New York primary and the delegates are divided proportionally based on the results. Clinton enters Tuesday’s primary with a lead of 229 pledged delegates.
