Presumed GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic 2016 hopeful Hillary Clinton are polling within the margin of error in Georgia, according to a survey released by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

The billionaire took 47 percent and Clinton took 41 percent in the Peach State, while 13 percent is still undecided, according to the poll.

Among independents, the former secretary of state held a one percent lead over Trump, coming out at 39 percent and 38 percent respectively – 14 percent said they would choose neither if the election were held today.

Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders faired better than Clinton in the state, taking in the highest favorability rating among the candidates at 47 percent. Trump followed Sanders at 41 percent favorability, while Clinton trailed behind with just 31 percent.

When Sanders was pitted against Trump in the survey, he held a five percent lead over the mogul, taking in 47 percent to Trump’s 42 percent – a surprising result given Clinton won the Democratic primary in the state by a landslide.

Clinton polled 2 percent higher than Trump among females, taking in 44 percent to Trump’s 42 percent. While Sanders, the self-described Democratic socialist, took in 47 percent to Trump’s 39 percent.

The poll was conducted off answers from 822 registered voters across the state from May 9 to May 12 and has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.26 percentage points
