It's been a journey for voters who were hoping Bernie Sanders would win the White House.  

It was an unlikely candidacy that started small and built into a movement for democratic socialism.  Hillary Clinton is a far more traditional Democrat and ended up winning the party's nomination for President.  When Sanders bowed out, many of his supporters vowed to protest by not casting a vote, at all.  Then, Donald Trump won the Republican nomination.  

This is where some of Washtenaw County's Sanders supporters now stand.
