Hillary: "I Have Some Work To Do With Young People"

Hillary Clinton’s supporters were still cheering her name after her crushing defeat in New Hampshire Tuesday night during her concession speech. Her voice sounded tired and cracked after a week of campaigning in the Granite State.

“I still love New Hampshire and I always will,” she assured voters.

Clinton's progressive opponent Bernie Sanders beat her soundly and quickly in the first Democratic primary of the 2016 race. She congratulated him and immediately switched her focus to the future.

“Now we take this campaign to the entire country,” she continued. “We’re going to fight for every vote and every state.”

One of those is Michigan. She took a brief detour from campaigning in New Hampshire on Sunday to travel to Flint and speak to residents who were affected by the lead poisoning crisis.

“The kids I met in Flint were poisoned because their governor wanted to save money,” she fumed.

She is ready to work for people who are angry, yet “hungry for solutions,” she insisted.

She admitted, however, that she has room to improve on certain demographics.

“I know I have some work to do, particularly with young people.”

The millennial vote in New Hampshire went to Sanders overwhelmingly - particularly young women. They chose Sanders by a rate of 82 percent to Clinton's 18 percent. 

In fact, the only demographic she did win was voters who earn over $200,000 or more.

She also pledged to rein in Wall Street – another promise that voters are likely to question
