Sanders supporters have been frustrated over the release of DNC emails by Wikileaks that show the supposedly neutral organization had a bias toward Clinton.

Earlier on Tuesday, Clinton was officially nominated as the party's presidential nominee, making her the first female candidate of a major US political party.

In an attempt at unity, Sanders had urged his supporters not to leave the arena. A number walked off the floor following Clinton's nomination, however.
Nearly all seats in the Maine, Kansas, Alaska, and Oklahoma sections were empty.

Protests also occurred on the first day of the convention, with speakers interrupted by boos and chants of "Lock Her Up." Many voiced their opposition to the TPP trade deal.

‘Unity not a word to win Bernie Sanders supporters’ – FishTank


Boos for Hillary Clinton and chants for Bernie Sanders marked the first day of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. What will we see on Day Two? Ruth Conniff, editor of The Progressive magazine, joins RT America’s Lindsay France in the FishTank and says that Democrats need to talk about the impact Bernie Sanders has had on the party and policy, rather than just asking them for unity. Then, conservative commentator Crystal Wright joins France and says that the Democrats haven’t been specific enough about how they plan to pay for all their promises
