[ applause ] all of you and all of the american people, we are the quarterbacks of our future. >> reporter: but a win in south carolina and large super tuesday states like texas, virginia, and georgia could give clinton an insurmountable lead. >> hey, how are you. >> she has already begun to talk less about sanders and more about republicans. >> they want to turn back all of our rights. women's rights. civil rights.
workers rights. >> sanders acknowledged he is dependent on one thing. >> our job is to create high voter turnout. >> so far democratic turnout is down from 2008 by 25% in iowa, 13% in new hampshire. and 33% in nevada. >> you often say you want to create the kind of political revolution that president obama couldn't. its the fact that turnout is lower a sign that that revolution isn't happening. >> no, a sign that barack obama ran unprecedented brilliant campaign in 2008. we have come a long way. we are in the lead in some national polls. i think we have made real progress. >> reporter: the reason sanders wants high turnout its because it would signify that younger voters who typically bag him are flocking to the polls. but, scott, older voters have always been more reliable voters. and in nevada for instance, seniors went for clinton by full 50 points.
