Clinton added that Sanders “didn’t get into the race to make sure a
Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic
Party.”

In a statement on Wednesday, Sanders countered: “My response is that
right now it’s appropriate to look forward and not backward.”

There is good evidence that defections by Sanders’ Democratic primary
voters to Trump on Nov. 8 played a decisive role in Trump’s victory.

Brian Schaffner, a political scientist at the University of
Massachusetts-Amherst, calculated that Sanders-to-Trump voters were key
to Trump’s victories in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. The
accompanying chart, which is based on the 2016 survey conducted by the
Cooperative Congressional Election Study, shows how crucial these
voters were. Voting for Sanders — and Trump

In three critical states, people voting for Sanders in the primary and
Trump in the general election far outnumbered Trump’s ultimate margins
of victory there.

The internal battle over how to maximize the political strength of the
party reflects the fact that it is made up of a coalition of multiple,
sometimes overlapping, factions with an intense desire to win, but in
constant competition with one another. These factions include economic
populists, led by Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, along with Jon Tester
and Sherrod Brown; increasingly influential women, including Kirsten
Gillibrand, Kamala Harris and Warren; an equally influential group of
African-American politicians, including Cory Booker, Deval Patrick and
Harris; Hispanics determined to gain power, including Julián and
Joaquín Castro and Xavier Becerra; and a still strong but often
challenged white male Democratic establishment that includes Joe Biden
and Terry McAuliffe.

Many of the current conflicts enlarge upon the ideological divisions
that dominated the 2016 presidential primaries, with Hillary Clinton
representing the centrist wing and Bernie Sanders the progressive wing.
