ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders on Sunday (May 22) told supporters in California his campaign "is the campaign that will defeat Trump, and defeat him badly", as he continued to push forward toward the Democratic National Convention in July. "Today there was, I think today, a poll came out from the NBC in the Wall Street Journal. It said that Hillary Clinton was ahead of Donald Trump by three points. We were ahead by 15 points," Sanders said at the rally in Vista. He added, "And that is why our campaign is the campaign that will defeat Trump, and defeat him badly." Sanders has clashed with the Democratic establishment and said it favors his rival Hillary Clinton. While the Democratic primary now hits a two-week lull before the final set of major nominating contests scheduled for June 7, Sanders said the challenge now was securing as many delegates as possible. "If we can win big here, we're going to have the momentum taking us into the Democratic convention to win the nomination. And if we win the nomination, I assure you, Donald Trump will not become president," he told cheering supporters. Democratic voters in California head to the polls on June 7, where 475 delegates are at stake.
