>> Well, I think there are a lot of people that are Bernie or bust. And I think a lot of those people are activist that will jump on to something, to some ideal, to some cause and I don't know that in the long run, they know how It affects their cause.
00:00:20
>> Bernie Sanders' supporters have had to come to grips with the fact that their candidate isn't the nominee. And while the protest of the Democratic National Convention fed the narrative of a party divided, they obscured divisions within the Sanders camp about how to move forward. Shamako Franklin is a working single mom, a student and a Bernie Sanders delegate from California.
00:00:39
She connects strongly with Sanders message and objects stridently to Hilary Clinton's record. But Franklin is deeply ambivalent about her fellow supporters booing, jeering and walking out of the convention.>> I felt a little bit disappointed in some of it because I think it's ultimately more tactical than strategic and, in the long haul, if we want to make movement, then we have learn how to play by the rules.
00:01:01
I think it's important for people to speak up and feel like they can be heard. But at the same time, there's this portrayal in the media that we are buffoons, that we're idiots, that we're clowns. And it feeds into that narrative right that we can't be taken seriously.
00:01:18
>> After Clinton's nomination Tuesday night, many Bernie delegates walked out of the arena and occupied the nearby media center in protest.>> This is the beginning of this revolution. It's not the end.>> Many have asked whether Clinton can ever regain the support of hardcore Bernie supporters. But that question presumes democrats ever had their support to begin with.
00:01:34
>> I think there's this idea, right, that these people that are Bernie investors are gonna give their vote to Trump. But these people maybe never would have voted to begin with. They probably wouldn't have voted for Clinton. They probably wouldn't have voted for Trump. They may have abstained, or they may have voted Green.
00:01:53
So I don't think it's a major shift the way that people are portraying it to be.
