Sanders: Still Hatred Among Some of My Supporters Toward Clinton


Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) on Friday morning told MSNBC's Morning Joe there is still hatred towards Hillary Clinton "among some people" who supported his presidential campaign.

"Are you still hearing this sense of betrayal from your supporters?" New York Times reporter Jeremy Peters asked Sanders. "Is there still that hatred for her?"

Sanders admitted that ill feelings against Clinton exist "among some people, but not among the vast majority."

Sanders' comment comes amid polls showing a closer race for Hillary Clinton against Donald Trump. Clinton has failed to excite the enthusiasm of younger voters aged 18 to 34, many of whom supporters Sanders, according to recent polling.

Sanders will be heading to Ohio on Saturday to make the case to millennial voters why they should vote for Hillary Clinton.
