Dean: Sanders Support Comes From Older White Men

Sunday on MSNBC’s “Weekends With Alex Witt,” former Vermont governor and DNC chair Howard Dean said Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sander’s (I-VT) support comes from “older white, especially men,” not the younger millennials as widely reported.

Dean said, “I know that there’s a thing—he’s got all these young people and all this stuff. Bernie’s crowd is essentially older, white, especially men, although he’s doing well with women that are 45, who are angry because they’ve lost their jobs and they felt the squeeze and they don’t like it. Those people are on the liberal end of the spectrum as well as the conservative end of the spectrum. Again, I think—I believe Hillary is a better candidate for the general election. She’ll definitely be a better president.”
