Millennial Bernie Supporter to Hillary: We Think You're Dishonest, You Know

Last night in a last ditch effort before the Iowa caucus next week, the DNC held a Democrat forum with CNN. Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders and Martin O'Malley participated. 

During Clinton's question and answer session, a millennial told Clinton that not only is he voting for Sanders, but his friends don't think she's very honest. As a warning, Clinton laughs loudly at the beginning of this clip. 

"It feels like there are a lot of young people, like myself, who are very passionate supporters of Bernie Sanders and I just don't see the same enthusiasm from younger people for you. In fact, I've heard from quite a few people my age that they think you're dishonest but I'd like to hear from you on why you think the enthusiasm isn't there," Iowa native Taylor Gipple asked.

Clinton tried to play the issue of millennials flocking to Sanders as a good thing, saying any kind of involvement in the election process is positive, but the truth is her campaign is starting panic over a drop in poll numbers and Sanders domination in early states.

Further, it isn't just millennials who don't trust Clinton, it's Americans in general

An NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll released this week shows that 53 percent of all voters rate Clinton poorly when it comes to her being honest and straightforward, with 42 percent–a plurality–scoring her very poorly in this category.

Meanwhile, only 27 percent of voters give her a good rating for honesty.
