“I feel good about the momentum we have. I think we are going to do well on Tuesday and beat Biden,” Sanders said. “You know, last time, as you indicated, it was seen as a big upset because polling had us down literally 20 points one day to the election.”

“If you were to lose in the first industrial Midwest state to vote — Michigan — on Tuesday, how serious is that? How damaging? And would you consider dropping out?” Wallace asked Sanders.

“Well, no, I certainly would not consider dropping out. You know, Chris, media ask you, ‘Is this state or that state life or death?’ I was asked that in Iowa. I was asked that in New Hampshire,” Sanders responded. “We won California, the largest state in this country. We are winning among Latino voters big time. We are winning, winning among young people.”

Sanders also addressed his remarks on the campaign trail contrasting his record with Biden’s, with Wallace noting the Obama administration’s support for the 2009 auto bailout is a key issue in Michigan.

“Well, the auto bailout was done by the Obama administration. It was a step forward,” Sanders said. “I think sometimes Joe is taking a little bit of credit as vice president for initiatives that were led by President Obama and by many members of the Congress.”
