Molly Ball: Clinton Needs to Bring in Young People Who Have Been ‘Immune to Her Charms’

‘She doesn’t only need to bring home Democrats but a lot of independents and a lot of young people who may never have voted before who have been absolutely immune to her charms in this Democratic primary’

BALL: "I think it’s gotten a lot worse. I have actually been surprised at the level of acrimony. And— and you know, the Clinton campaign believes that this is not a significant obstacle for her once we get to the General Election that the part of the reason it’s become so acrimonious is that the— the last sort of hard core that clings to a losing candidate is always going to be the most ardent and bitter and— and— and unable to see reality, perhaps. But it has, you know, we saw with the Nevada convention, some really ugly things being hurled at the state chairwoman there by the Bernie Sanders’ supporters, and I think that shows you that— and, you know, going back to this question about the Democrats come home the way Republicans come home, it’s actually a different question for Hillary Clinton than that because so much of Bernie Sanders support has come from independents in open primaries. So she doesn’t have to only bring in— to bring in his supporters she doesn’t only need to bring home Democrats but a lot of independents and a lot of young people who may never have voted before who have been absolutely immune to her charms in this Democratic primary."
