The Democrats Effectively Tied in Iowa, But Sanders Won the Future  New York Magazine

In 2008, voters under 30 propelled Barack Obama to victory, choosing the Illinois senator over Hillary Clinton by a 43-point margin. In 2016, those younger voters single-handedly lifted America's favorite democratic socialist to a virtual tie: Sanders outperformed Clinton among voters 18 to 29 by 70 points, according to CNN's entrance poll.

Unfortunately, 'the future' might start AFTER 2016. Quoting Slate's  Jamelle Bouie:

Sanders is already a historic candidate--the first socialist in a century to build a genuine mass movement in American party politics. And whatever the Democratic Party is in the next 20 or 30 years, it will owe a great deal to Sanders and all the people--young or otherwise--who felt the Bern.
