Sanders Supporter Compares Voting For Hillary Clinton To Shooting Yourself

MSNBC correspondent Jacob Soboroff was asking people around Los Angeles what they thought of the presidential primaries. One supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) had an interesting and entertaining answer when Soboroff asked him about the general election.

Sanders supporter Frank Ontiveros was riding the train when Soboroff asked him for his opinion.

"We've got a big election coming up. Have you thought about who you are going to support yet?" Soboroff asked.

"Not quite there. We're going to see where it turns out with the Republicans. Definitely not Hillary," Ontiveros said. "So, the underdog's who I'm thinking about."

"So, you're a no-Hillary guy. Underdog, meaning Bernie?" Soboroff asked.

"That's correct," Ontiveros said.

"OK, but if Bernie doesn't win, and it's Hillary versus Donald Trump in the general election, what are you going to do?" Soboroff said.

"It's like shooting yourself or stabbing yourself, one or the other," Ontiveros said.

California has its primaries for both the Republican and Democratic parties on Tuesday, June 7. Trump is the only Republican candidate still in the race while Clinton has a wide lead over Sanders in delegates. Clinton also is leading Sanders in the polls in California, which has a large number of delegates at stake.
