MANCHESTER -- The results of the Iowa caucuses revealed what Hillary Clinton Wednesday night called an "amazing" statistic. She lost voters under 30 to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders by 70 points. She won women overall but lost the vote of young, unmarried women by 10 points.
"That’s amazing," Clinton remarked.
So, what's the problem?
"I don't really know," Clinton told Anderson Cooper at CNN's Democratic forum on Wednesday night.
"I accept the fact that I have work to do to convey what I stand for, what I’ve accomplished, what I want to do for young people in the country," Clinton said.
Sanders has a strong following among college-aged students who proved on Monday night in Iowa that they would come out in force to support him. She faces a similar problem in New Hampshire where many young voters say they simply don't trust her.
A key factor is Sanders's support for free college tuition, which Clinton does not support. She instead says that public colleges should be "debt-free" and that the government should not take on the burden of funding college for "Donald Trump's kids."
"Good ideas on paper are important but you’ve got to be able to translate them into results for people," Clinton said.
She added that she would do "everything" she can to earn their support.
"They don’t have to be for me, I'm going got be for them," Clinton said. "It doesn’t really matter if they are not supporting me, I will be their president."
