Ralston: Clinton ‘Concerned’ Unregistered Young Voters Will Caucus for Sanders

‘I think the Clinton campaign is concerned that a lot of these young voters who are not registered yet are going to go caucus on Saturday and vote for Bernie Sanders’

GOLODRYGA: “John, can you talk about the young voter and the difficulty that Hillary Clinton is having in sort of inspiring them to come to her circle? This has surprised her in her camp going back to Iowa. What is the sense you’re getting in Nevada?”
RALSTON: “You know, I think it’s the same here as it is all over the place in the sense that I’ve been to some Bernie Sanders rallies, including one yesterday in a totally packed high school gymnasium where there was crowds all the way out to the street, a lot of young people and much more diverse crowd than I think the Clinton folks would like to see there. He is generating that kind of enthusiasm. I mean, people make the analogy between Bernie Sanders in ‘16 and Obama in ‘08. I don’t think that’s quite right but it’s clear that these young folks are syncing with Bernie Sanders’ message that we need a change, that the current government is corrupt, that we need someone who is not part of the so-called establishment and I think because the Nevada caucus has same day registration about a quarter of the turnout in 2008 was new registrants, I think the Clinton campaign is concerned that a lot of these young voters who are not registered yet are going to go caucus on Saturday and vote for Bernie Sanders.”
