ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is interrupted by protesters during a rally at State University of New York (SUNY) at Purchase on Thursday (March 31). "She wins, we lose," the protesters shouted. "Oh I know the Bernie people came to say that. We're very sorry you're leaving," Clinton joked as her supporters started to chant. "I have two and a half million more votes than Bernie Sanders," Clinton exclaimed as the protesters were led out of the room. Clinton now has a lead of 268 pledged delegates over Sanders. When superdelegates, party leaders who can support any candidate, are added, Clinton leads 1,712-1,004, according to an Associated Press count. But Sanders aides said he could eclipse Clinton's advantage once the final round of contests are held on June 7, and that superdelegates would begin to switch to back Sanders once he did. Clinton's campaign described her lead as "insurmountable" given the party's proportional allocation of delegates in all states, which means Clinton will keep piling up delegates even in states Sanders wins. "We're very sorry you're leaving," Hillary Clinton jokes to protesters as she declares her lead over rival Bernie Sanders in the Democratic race. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
