During his address at the Our Revolution event in Washington, D.C. Wednesday, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) told the crowd, “running against the most unpopular presidential candidate in history, the Republicans have just won the White House.”

It is possible the one time Democratic Presidential hopeful misspoke.  Did he truly mean that his past Democratic Presidential rival Hillary Clinton was the most unpopular presidential candidate in history?

Here’s Sanders' quote and video from the event discussing the future of the Democratic Party:

“The painful truth is that despite President Obama's strong victories in 2008 and 2012, the Democratic Party has lost enormous political ground over the last eight years.”

“That's just the truth. Running against the most unpopular presidential candidate in history, the Republicans have just won the White House.”
