These days Senator Bernie Sanders has every reason to smile.
Below is the screenshot of their email and poll results (click image to enlarge).
www.democrats.com is running a Democratic primary poll. The results showed (with over 54,000 votes so far) that even with Hillary Clinton (at 20%) and Joe Biden (at 7%) combined, Bernie sanders still wins by a whopping 48%.
Most other polls we see in the media headlines are taken from much smaller samplings — and that’s even considering that only Democratic-leaning people may be voting at this website.
The poll results are here:

Bernie Sanders' huge campaign haul probably worries Hillary Clinton — not just for its size, but for the way it was achieved.
The vast majority of Bernie's contributions came in small donations from one million modest donors, not a very few wealthy donors. This means that Bernie can keep going back to these same supporters later in the campaign.
By contrast, Clinton's donors have already maxed out their allowable contributions for the primaries. Meaning, Hillary will have to start drilling for new oil by holding more fund-raisers in search of new donors.
And while she’s doing that, Bernie will be out campaigning.
