favoring hillary clinton's nomination, was provided the opportunity for people that did to like that idea to leak wikileaks. host: the bernie sanders affect, two callers now. about what the democratic party has to address? is oneif there overwhelming message from the 2016 election is voters wanted change and did not feel democrats were offering change. they want to see some thing new from democrats.
>> every single time, moderates have been the biggest group. they are 44% of the vote in virginia. 49% in new jersey. there is a real need for those candidates to win moderate. don't win moderate, they are not going to be able to get their governors and measures. no matter how made -- how many were energized by coming out. >> the moderates will be the maker that. >> you're talking economic issues. when the democratic party talks, the usually align with certain social issues, what do you do with those? >> we just did a big run a policy for voters in battleground states. what they said about social issues is that they were mostly fine with where the democratic party was. they said they need to focus on the day-to-day concern. they were both very
supportive in particular of things like marriage for gay couples, they moved a lot on some of those issues. they didn't see it as the number one concern. they felt like it was being used to repeal certain groups within the electorate. they were saying what is going on with my job? what is happening with my paycheck and supporting my family? those thingssee focus on their priorities in a way that they didn't feel like happened in the last campaign. >> jacksonville florida. let's go to gregory. --gory, in silverstein silver spring, maryland. isgory: good morning, this for c-span. i love the program. you guys should have the name of the postwar moderator available at all times are us to see. just so we can remember.

gerrymandering is a problem and definitely one of the things on that menu. >> judy, you are next up. anotherwant to do at voice to the democrats who feel that they were cheated by the way that the democratic national committee handled bernie sanders. across the was board. what he was doing with was , minimum wage, job availability, health care, single-payer, everything -- press secretary sanders: good afternoon everyone. i would like to bring up national security adviser general h.r. mcmaster and treasury secretary steven .nuchin openingl each make remarks and then take your
