A new poll released Thursday night, just days before the state’s primary, shows Bernie Sanders with the upper hand in California.

The USC Dornsife/Los Angeles poll shows Sanders leading Democratic primary opponent Hillary Clinton by one point, a sign he is building up his support in the Golden State.

Sanders’ one point lead is within the margin of error.

Among voters under 50, Senator Sanders holds a dominating 27-point advantage over Secretary Clinton, who leads Sanders in the over 50 bracket.

82 percent of voters under 30 said they held a positive view of Sanders.

California’s primary rules mean that independent voters, who are not registered Democrats are able to participate. This is expected to benefit Sanders, who generally performs best with independents.

Voters in California will head to the polls on Tuesday.
