Sanders: ‘Real Unemployment Remains Much Too High’

While campaigning in Youngstown, OH on Thursday for Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders told the crowd, “Let’s be honest. Real unemployment remains much too high.”

“A lot of people are out there, people who have given up looking for work in high unemployment areas,” Sanders concluded.

Sanders’ comments about Obama’s struggling economy is probably not the message the Clinton campaign wants out there. Hillary Clinton has been selling herself as a third Obama term in the final days of the election.

Sanders rose to prominence in the Democratic primary because of his clear economic agenda that appealed to working class white voters, a voting block that Hillary Clinton has struggled to win over due to her lack of a clear economic message.
