Democrats Divided on Social Media

Hosted by

Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders, the two Democratic presidential nominees, debated last night in New Hampshire. The primary there is Tuesday. Time and again, Sanders depicted  Clinton as part of the establishment and the Wall Street status quo. And Clinton hit back by painting Sanders as pushing unrealistic policies on health care, education and the economy, and pointing out his inexperience in foreign policy. As the race heats up between the two candidates, it also seems to be inflaming their supporters, who have been duking it out online.

We look at the conflict on social media platforms.
