NEW YORK， June 2 (Xinhua) -- With the final primaries of the 2016 U.S. presidential election approaching， a Quinnipiac University National poll released Wednesday finds the candidates most likely to lead their parties into the general election are locked in a much tighter race.
Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton's small 45-41 percent lead over Republican Donald Trump contrasted sharply with her 13-point edge in a CNNORC poll released on May 4， just before the New York real estate billionaire locked up the Republican presidential nomination.
The narrowing margin took place in less than a month when the Republicans were slowly rallying behind their presumptive nominee Trump and the Democrats are stuck in a prolonged primary fight between Clinton and her long-shot challenger Bernie Sanders.
The bitter discord in the Democratic Party with Sanders' persistent momentum on the campaign trail and his appeal among the progressives and young voters came into the limelight， overshadowing Clinton's run to the White House， experts said.
Some even cautioned that the Democrats' split is helping the Republicans as some Democrats are anxious to see Clinton begin to unify the party and focus her attention on an election showdown with Trump.
"The person that is doing the most to elect Trump is Bernie Sanders，" Allan Lichtman， an American political historian who teaches at American University in Washington， D.C.， told Xinhua.
"By prolonging the Democratic contest， by prolonging the contest of the party in power， by continuing to attack Hillary Clinton， he is creating a situation -- even though he has no chance to win the nomination， that makes much more possible for Trump to win，" he said.
"Historically， if the party holding the White House doesn't come together pretty early， they lose，" said Prof. Lichtman， the author of "The Keys to the White House" which elaborates his proven method of predicting the winners in presidential elections.
Clinton， a former secretary of state and first lady， said on Tuesday that her aides and Sanders' have been in talks about how to unify the Democratic Party as the primary season closes. Those conversations will intensify， she told CNN's Jake Tapper on "The Lead."
But Sanders， 74， presented a different scenario. He told a rally in Santa Cruz on the same day that after the June 7 contests， neither Clinton nor him would have garnered enough pledged delegates to become the Democratic nominee.
Six states will hold presidential nominating contests on June 7， with California being the biggest prize of 546 delegates up for grabs.
A new NBC NewsWall Street JournalMarist poll released Thursday showed that Clinton is clinging to a narrow two-point lead over Sanders in California ahead of the primary.
So far， Clinton has secured 2，312 delegates， 71 short of the number needed to clinch her party' nomination for the Nov. 8 general election. That number included 543 super-delegates， the party insiders who can back any candidate at the Democratic National Convention regardless of how people voted in primaries and caucuses.
Sanders is lagging far behind， at 1，545 delegates. Arguing that Clinton's lead is largely based on her wide advantage among the 714 super-delegates， the Vermont senator has vowed to carry his campaign all the way to the convention scheduled for July in Philadelphia.
Although he admitted it was an uphill fight to overtake Clinton， he called the California primary "the big enchilada." He will also "make the case to the super-delegates" that he is the stronger candidate to defeat Trump in November， Sanders told NBC News' "Meet the Press" program.
Throughout the year， Sanders and his supporters have questioned about the nomination process and ways they belie.
