Sanders: Low Voter Turnout Hurt Us In Nevada

AP

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) said Sunday that a low voter turnout rate hurt his results in the Nevada caucus where his rival Hillary Clinton triumphed.

Sanders, who won the New Hampshire primary, discussed his loss on NBC’s “Meet the Press.” He touted his win among Latino voters, but noted the turnout rate.

“But the voter turnout was not as high as I had wanted,” Sanders said. “And what I’ve said over and over again, we will do well when young people, when working-class people come out. We do not do well when the voter turnout is not large. We did not do as good a job as I had wanted to bring out a large turnout.”

Clinton had 52.7 percent of votes and Sanders had 47.2 percent in Nevada.
