    Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are leading their competitors by double digits in Michigan's March 8 primary, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Marist poll.

    In the Republican race, Trump gets support from 41 percent of likely primary voters -- followed by Ted Cruz at 22 percent, Marco Rubio at 17 percent and John Kasich at 13 percent.

    In the Democratic contest, Clinton leads Sanders among likely primary voters by 17 points, 57 percent to 40 percent. But the race is closer among the larger potential Democratic electorate, with Clinton at 52 percent and Sanders at 44 percent.

    In hypothetical general-election matchups, the poll shows both Clinton and Sanders have the advantage over Trump in Michigan. Clinton leads Trump by 16 points, 52 percent to 36 percent, while Sanders is ahead by an even wider margin, 56 percent to 34 percent.
