Bernie Sanders: 'Hillary Clinton Will Be the Problem'


With just one day to go before the critical Iowa Caucuses, Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders suggested that rival Hillary Clinton would hurt Democrats' chances of retaking the House of Representatives in an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press."

Democratic elected officials and operatives have expressed concern that Sanders would damage candidates in down-ballot races, especially in red and purple states, if he wins the party's nomination. But Sanders said the opposite is true when asked by NBC News' Chuck Todd about his impact on House races Sunday.

"Hillary Clinton will be the problem," Sanders said. "Because I think our campaign is the campaign that is generating excitement and energy that will result in a high voter turnout. Republicans win when voter turnout is low. Democrats win when voter turnout is high."

Sanders, who trails Clinton in Iowa by just three points in the Des Moines Register poll released Saturday night, downplayed the importance of winning the state's caucuses Monday.

1. Bernie Did Great ON MTP.....

The Toad threw as much crap as he could with respect to his questions at Bernie. Bernie just fielded the questions and stuck to his platform and game plan and didn't fall for the crap. Now we have to watch as all of those that follow Bernie on this program - will be those that take shots at Bernie and will be Hillary supporters. I hate it how they keep trying to burn the Berner.

Go Bernie!!!!
