South Carolina's Clinton supporters are not worried about her chances in SC
Sanders proves he is just as relevent as Clinton

The Democratic Iowa Caucus had one of the closest results in America's history. After hours of calculation, Hilary Clinton came in with 49.8% of the votes and Bernie Sanders with 49 percent... a mere 0.2 percent difference.
The New Hampshire primary is coming up on February 9. The two candidates are gearing up and laying groundwork in hopes of winning over more votes and delegates. Their headquarters in Columbia, however, are more focused on the South Carolina primary, which will be held February 27.
Rebecca Sanders is a Clinton campaign fellow based in Columbia. Says her office is going to focus on making a lot more phone calls and talking with voters face to face. Despite the close call in Iowa, Rebecca says she is not worried about Clinton's chances here in South Carolina.
The Sanders Columbia campaign office did have any comment on the results but Sanders' local fan base is not worried about his chances. University of South Carolina student and Sanders supporter, Kathleen Mauck, says the Iowa caucus only proves how much of an impact Sanders has in the race.
The South Carolina polls have Clinton in the lead with 64 percent of the votes, and Sanders with only 27 percent. However, this was before the Iowa caucus. The results of the New Hampshire primary should better predict what's to come.
