Bernie Sanders really stepped in it on Meet the Press yesterday. When asked by host Chuck Todd why he’s lost in some states to Hillary, he said “Because poor people don’t vote.”
That’s not only inaccurate, it’s offensive.
Bernie Sanders: I’m Losing States ‘Because Poor People Don’t Vote’
On Meet the Press this morning, Bernie Sanders said that he’s losing states to Hillary Clinton in part “because poor people don’t vote.”
Chuck Todd brought up how many states with high levels of income inequality have gone for Clinton so far. Sanders said poor people aren’t voting, lamenting it as a “sad reality of American society.”

This gaffe isn’t likely to hurt Bernie Sanders.
After all, he’s not a Republican.
