New Hampshire Voter Tells MSNBC Why They Made Her Support Bernie Sanders

A voter in New Hampshire told MSNBC host Ari Melber how their coverage of Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (VT) was so unfair, in her eyes, that it was enough to get her to back him in the state's primary on Tuesday.

"I want to say the reason I went for Bernie is because of MSNBC. I think it is completely cynical to say that he's lost 50% of his vote from the last time when there's two candidates, now there are multiple, wonderful candidates who would be great presidents and people...we can unify and get behind," the woman told Melber.

"But the kinda 'Stop Bernie' cynicism that I heard from a number of people — I watch MSNBC constantly, so I heard that from a number of commentators — it made me angry enough, I said, 'Ok, Bernie's got my vote,'" she said.

Melber called her viewpoint "interesting" and said journalists have to be open-minded to criticisms. He asked her if their coverage of Sanders went on to "endear" him to her.

"Absolutely, absolutely. I could have chosen several candidates, but that's what pushed me over the edge for Bernie," she said.

Sanders is the favorite to win the primary. The self-described democratic socialist is polling at an average of 28.7%, according to RealClearPolitics. Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg is in second place at an average 21.3% and Sen. Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) is at a distant third at 11.7%.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, who had an abysmal performance at in the Iowa caucuses, is leaving New Hampshire will not even attend his party in person, choosing instead to travel to South Carolina tonight.
