Sanders on ‘Tie Ballgame’ With Clinton

Senator Bernie Sanders told volunteers and supporters about the huge gains in poll numbers against Hillary Clinton and the need for a big turnout at the Democratic presidential caucuses.

Des Moines, Iowa - 1 February 2016++AUDIO AS INCOMING++//“You know, we came to Iowa nine months ago, and I think it’s fair to say that very few people in this beautiful state knew who I was or what we stood for. And, in fact, I think about eight months, the Des Moines Register did a poll that had us 41 points behind. That was a good poll, because there are other polls that had us 50 points behind. We have made up a lot of progress in the last eight months.”//“So, I think our success in this campaign up to now has been because of the enthusiasm of our volunteers, the willingness of the people of Iowa to absorb and listen to the message that we have brought forth.”//“And my guess it today, there was a poll out today that had us a little bit ahead, poll out the other day that had Secretary Clinton a little bit ahead. You got a tied ballgame, that’s where we are. But what every poll tells us and what every political pundit understands it he following - we will win tonight if the voter turnout is high. We will struggle tonight if the voter turnout is low. That’s the fact. So what is our job today is to make sure that we have the highest voter turnout possible. That happens, we win. Let’s go get them. Thank you all.”
