Are Bernie supporters Democrats?

In 2008 Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton fought hard to win the Democratic presidential nomination. It wash rough but when it was over Clinton appealed to her supporters and encouraged them to vote for the eventual president. Clinton like her supporters was a Democrat and she supported the nominee, but in the election season we are seeing a different kind of voter on the Democratic side. Bernie supporters have used terms like “democratic whore”, they have brought up Monica Lewinsky and called Clinton unethical.  The have in fact provided Donald Trump with some of his talking points.  His supporters seemingly have a Bernie or Bust attitude. One is left to ask the question, “are they really Democrats?”  The answer is no, but look at who they are supporting…Bernie is not a Democrat either.
