Sanders on Winning Nomination: ‘It’s Difficult; It’s Not Impossible’
Bernie Sanders is still adamant that he can win the Democratic nomination, calling the task “difficult,” not “impossible.”
“It’s difficult; it’s not impossible,” he said on CBS’s “Face The Nation” on Sunday.
“Now 65 percent is a pretty heavy climb, but these are states … that I think we’re going to do very, very well in,” the Vermont senator said.

Sanders also said he thinks he can garner support from superdelegates in states where he has won the majority of the vote.
He also called on voters to look at who the stronger candidate to beat Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump in a general election would be.
“We appeal to not only the overwhelming majority of Democrats,” he said. “We appeal to independents as well.”
He said he is “absolutely” still fighting to beat Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton for the nomination.
“It’s a tough fight,” he acknowledged, though he touted his campaign’s ideas as the future of the Democratic Party.
