Bernie Sanders bashes New York election law [View all]

Bernie Sanders on Monday slammed the election law that will prevent independent voters from casting votes in New York's primary on Tuesday.

"It's bad New York state election law. What it says to the many hundreds of thousands or more independents who would like to vote tomorrow for me or for anybody else -- they' can't participate," the presidential candidate said on "CBS This Morning."

"I think that that's wrong and that does hurt us because we win independent voters about two to one," Sanders added, in effect lowering expectations a little for the outcome.

Only registered Democrats and Republicans can participate in their respective party's primary on Tuesday in New York. Every state sets its own rules, and one of the reasons why Sanders has performed well in states that hold caucuses is because independents are usually allowed to participate. A CBS News battleground tracker poll released Sunday found that Clinton has a 10-percentage-point lead ahead of Sanders in New York 53 to 43 percent.

Asked how bad the Democratic primary process is in terms of delegate allocation, Sanders said, "I have serious problems with it. You know, this is the establishment, folks."
