I was surprised these hadn't already been posted. Usually a few Hillary supporters have poll results up the very second they're released. Anyway it's good news for Bernie on all fronts, even SC where he's seeing some improvement.

The most interesting statistic to come out of it is the 18-29 demographic. Bernie is winning there in a landslide, and it might be enough to tip the scales on caucus day if they show up.

My kids are very pro-Bernie, my guess is that they won't vote though

If you don't get that then you receive zero delegates. If O'Malley stays in the race through the caucuses this could actually come into play. What will end up happening is O'Malley's supporters will have to decide between the Sanders camp or the Clinton camp and join one of them.
