A new poll out Thursday indicates registered Hispanic voters are divided between Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders.

A net 48 percent of respondents backed Sanders while 47 percent supported Clinton, according to a March 30-April 3 poll by the Public Religion Research Institute and The Atlantic.

A win in the Empire State's April 18 primary would likely mean winning a portion of the state's 14 percent Hispanic voting bloc.

Clinton has historically performed better in states with higher Hispanic populations, winning Florida, Texas and Arizona earlier in the year.

But Sanders may be catching up to Clinton with Hispanics, comparing the new findings to older poll numbers. A February NBC News/WSJ/Telemundo poll had found only 39 percent of Hispanics supported Sanders while 56 percent backed Clinton.

The Democratic socialist has fared well with Millennial voters, a good chunk of New York's Hispanic population, which could explain his growing support among them.

"Latino voters are more likely to be younger than white voters and that's been part of his appeal. He's been able to be very strong among younger voters," Robert Jones, PRRI CEO, said.

The poll had a 7.1 percent margin of error.
