Hillary Clinton has opened up big leads against her principal rival, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, in the early voting states of Nevada and South Carolina, a new poll shows.

The CNN/ORC poll shows the breakdown of support among those likely to vote in Nevada's Feb. 20 caucus, with the yet-undeclared candidate Vice President Joe Biden included, at:
  • Clinton: 50 percent
  • Sanders: 34 percent
  • Biden: 12 percent
  • The rest of the field – former Rhode Island governor Lincoln Chafee, Harvard professor Larry Lessig, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Virginia senator Jim Webb – garners less than 1 percent
Among those who say they're likely to vote in South Carolina's primary, set for Feb. 27, with Biden included, the support comes in at:
  • Clinton: 49 percent
  • Biden: 24 percent
  • Sanders: 18 percent
  • O'Malley: 3 percent
Without Biden, results in South Carolina show support breaking:
  • Clinton: 70 percent
  • Sanders: 20 percent
  • O'Malley: 3 percent
In Nevada, without Biden, the difference between Clinton and Sanders comes in at:
  • Clinton: 58 percent
  • Sanders: 36 percent
In a racial breakdown, black voters in South Carolina support:
  • Clinton: 59 percent
  • Biden: 27 percent
  • Sanders: 4 percent
Among white voters, results show support breaking:
  • Sanders: 44 percent
  • Clinton: 31 percent
  • Biden: 22 percent
Without Biden in the race, white voters split nearly evenly between Clinton, with 48 percent, and Sanders, 47 percent. Black voters break 84 percent for Clinton and 7 percent for Sanders, the poll shows.

Nevada, South Carolina, Iowa and New Hampshire are the only states permitted by both parties to hold primaries or caucuses in February.

A recent Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll showed in Iowa, Clinton just 11 points ahead of Sanders; while trailing him in New Hampshire.

On policy areas in both Nevada and South Carolina, Clinton holds double-digit advantages as able to do the best job handling the economy, health care, race relations, foreign policy and climate change, according to the poll.

She's also seen by 58 percent in South Carolina, and 59 percent in in Nevada, as being the candidate with the best chance to win in 2016.

But when it comes to honesty and trustworthy, the poll finds in South Carolina, support breaks:
  • Clinton: 35 percent
  • Biden: 27 percent
  • Sanders: 21 percent
On those same qualities, in Nevada, the support breaks:
  • Sanders: 33 percent
  • Clinton: 32 percent
  • Biden: 22 percent
The margin of error in South Carolina is 5.5 percentage point; for Nevada, it's 6 points.
