'Bernie Or Bustí Huge Problem For Clinton

Published on Jun 26, 2016

55% of Bernie Sanders supporters have stated that they are willing to vote for Hillary Clinton. That leaves a huge chunk of his voters that Clinton needs to win over. Ana Kasparian, Ben Mankiewicz, Jimmy Dore, and John Amato, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down.

1. Didn't a poll come out today saying that 81% of Bernie's followers

say they will vote for Hillary?

My guess is that most of the people who saw Elizabeth Warren and Hillary Clinton on stage today will be supporting Hillary.

4. Keep in mind that not all Bernie supporters are (were) Democrats. Independents make up a third of

potential voters, and they may not be as sanguine about migrating to the Clinton camp as DU Bernie fans.

And yes, Clinton will have to win them over. Also, Elizabeth Warren may not hold much magic for them...at least the ones I've talked to.

5. It will continue to be a problem for her.

 

and as the Democratic Party's platform committee keep voting against more progressive items, and Clinton adopts them, they may not come around. Can you blame them? Your candidate won nearly 45% of the popular vote and gets no say in the party's platform. Yeah, you, as the party leadership can put members from there on the committee, but when you ignore them, and vote against them, do not expect them to vote for your candidate. Expect them to stay home.
This could be solved by simply adopting some of the other (in the primary) sides points in your platform. That is the way it used to be done. I don't see why it is not being done now.
