Transcript via MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports:

MITCHELL: Now, her campaign manager, Robby Mook, put out a note saying this morning that you have to struggle to explain your path to the nomination. Can you (INAUDIBLE) or explain or respond to them?

SANDERS: Here is our path to the nomination. First of all, we have extraordinary momentum. We have won six out of the last seven caucuses and primaries. We’ll see what happens today in Wisconsin. We’ll see what happens shortly in Wyoming. And we have won all of those elections up to now by landslide victories.

We fought her off in the South where we did very, very badly (ph), and Secretary Clinton picked up a lot of delegates. But now we’re out of the South, and we’re heading to progressive parts of this country. I think we have a chance, an excellent chance, to win in New York. I think when we get out west in Oregon and California, I think we’re going to do very, very well. I think we can win the delegate, the pledged delegates.

And I’ll tell you something else. As I think Democrats and super delegates look at the political landscape, what they are seeing is, in poll after poll, Bernie Sanders does a lot better against Donald Trump than does Hillary Clinton. Now Hillary and I absolutely agree that the worst thing for this country would be to see a Donald Trump or (INAUDIBLE) Republican in the White House. And I think that when super delegates look at the reality of which candidate is the strongest against Republicans, I think you’re going to see a lot of the super delegates coming up with us.

Last CNN poll has us 20 points ahead of Donald Trump here in Wisconsin, a battleground state. We were 19 points ahead of him. In both cases, the margin was significantly greater than Secretary Clinton’s.

The entire Sanders plan hinges on winning New York. If Sen. Sanders doesn’t win in New York, then Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, he will not only be impossibly behind in pledged delegates, but he will also lose the argument that he is the candidate who deserves to be the Democratic nominee. After Wisconsin, there are no more open primaries and caucuses until May 3.

The rubber is about to hit the road for the Sanders campaign. If Sanders can win in closed or semi-closed primary states, he will prove that he is more than a caucus and open primary candidate. What is clear is that Sen. Sanders is not about to give up the fight. The campaign realizes that the path ahead of them is difficult, but Bernie Sanders is going fight on in the name of political revolution.
