Sanders: When the African-American Community Understands My Record We Will Do Better


Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Democratic Presidential Candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), said when the African-American community understands his record his campaign will “do better and better.”

Partial transcript as follows:

DICKERSON: That is a major breakthrough. Hillary Clinton, however, won among African-American voters, which is a large portion of the electorate in South Carolina. You don’t seem to be making inroads, and the clock is ticking.

SANDERS: We are making inroads. We are doing better. Interestingly, a lot of the polling that I see is not along racial lines, but along generational lines. We are doing better and better among younger people, not so well among older people, whether they’re African-American, whether they’re white or whether they’re Latino. But we have a — you’re right. We have a lot of work to do. But I think, when the African-American community understands my record on criminal justice, my record on economics, the agenda we’re bringing forth, raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, dealing with the fact that we have more people in jail, shamefully, than any other country on Earth, that I am against the death penalty, Secretary Clinton is not, I think, as people become familiar with my ideas, we are going to do better and better.
