INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Polls show Hillary Clinton has a narrow lead over Bernie Sanders in Indiana.

The latest numbers show Clinton with 50 percent support and Sanders with 46 percent among likely democratic voters in the Hoosier state.

Clinton has a commanding, if not insurmountable, lead in the delegate count. Clinton is ahead by more than 800 delegates. Sanders argues he can still win the nomination with super delegates. Sanders wants to convince all the superdelegates in the states he has won to vote for him.

Even if he wins Indiana and all the super delegates support Sanders, political experts say he will be far behind Clinton.

Sanders has not wavered in Indianapolis, telling supporters he still has a shot. Sanders said he wants to see the highest voter turnout in Indiana’s history today.

“When the voter turnout is high, when working people and middle class people and young people are prepared to come out and vote, and are prepared to stand up and fight back to create a government that belongs to all of us. When that happens, we win elections,” said Sanders.

Sanders insists he will go all the way to the convention.
