What would it take for Bernie Sanders supporters to vote for Hillary Clinton?


The day before Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders was set to speak at the Democratic National Convention, many of his supporters were vowing to leave the Democratic Party altogether. 

"Hillary could never do anything to get my vote, unless something completely drastic happened," Sanders supporter Rick Rigutto said.

Sanders supporters gathering in South Philadelphia's Roosevelt Park on Sunday dubbed their movement #DemExit -- a play on Brexit, when the U.K. voted to leave the European Union.

Many are  now supporting Green Party candidate Jill Stein for president.

New Yorker Alpana Bawa and her friends drove to Philadelphia to send a message to the DNC:

"Being from New York, I believe I can vote my conscience because it is going to go Democrat, so I will not be voting for [Clinton]."

Many rallygoers say there's little at this point that Clinton could do to change their minds.

"Here we are at the convention with a flawed candidate who nobody trusts, nobody's behind. No, we're not voting for her. She needs to go," Lisa LaValley Evans said.
