Especially alarming for Biden is that he's down to 30% support among black voters, who make up two-thirds of the South Carolina electorate and are a crucial voting bloc in the later states. Last summer, Biden captured half of black voters. Steyer is now at 24% among black voters, with Sanders at 16%.
If this is what's happening in South Carolina now, imagine if Biden loses Iowa and New Hampshire to Sanders, a very real possibility. Were that to happen, it would seriously damage his electability argument, going into a must-win state.
The flip side of this is that it's fantastic news for Sanders, who has narrowed the gap enough in South Carolina, that he could conceivably close it if he gains momentum from early wins in Iowa and New Hampshire.
