ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is vowing to push forward with his campaign despite recent reports that President Obama told Democrats to rally around his rival, Hillary Clinton. Appearing on CBS' Face the Nation news program, Sanders said polls show he would do better against the Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump during a general election than Hillary Clinton would. Sanders, a Vermont senator and self-proclaimed democratic socialist, has pushed back on the idea that his campaign had run its course and that he should throw in the towel. Clinton, a former secretary of state in the Obama administration, has a large lead in the race for the Democratic nomination and won all five states that were contested during primary voting on March 15. Sanders said he will do better in upcoming contests in western states, which he said tend to have more progressive voters.
