complicated complicated by our preconceived notions of women and of leaders. >> reporter: hillary clinton is shattering the glass ceiling but why are so many younger women seemingly more impressed with bernie sanders' ideology than this pioneer? >> i think it's a matter of ideology. i think if you're younger, you're more idealistic and as you get older, you become more realistic on what is possible. >> reporter: still, she will now switch allegiance to clinton so will gillian. and vermont native eric wagner. >> i'm not going to vote trump into office. >> that is the mantra of others feeling the bern. >> so the stakes are high, clearly hillary clinton will deliver the most important speech of her political career tonight. our political reporter is here with us to night in the newsroom. what should we expect to hear tonight? >> hillary clinton has a very high bar to clear tonight.
and it's not just because she is the first woman accepting the nomination of a major party. the history. she has so many challenges when it comes to her public perception, the whole issue of trust. she's been at the convention in which there is a parade of amazing speakers, including president obama president obama and michelle obama. she has to surpass them. then she's going to work on appealing to the voters out there on that trust issue. tell them who she is. tell them what she's done. and talk about how she's going to be different from donald trump. she has to do that with protests in the audience. they're hearing that bernie sanders supporters may be turning their backs on her. several dozen of them in the audience or walking out. but i think this is going to be an vent in which you're going to see democrats show a lot of support with hillary clinton. boy, the spotlight is on her and the heat is on her tonight.
>> do you really think she can overcome that trust issue, especially with the sanders supporters? >> this is a big challenge for hillary clinton. they got a lot of what they want in the democratic flat form. they have had a lot of face time at the convention and certainly bernie sanders put out the message that he wants unity. the fact is there is a bill contingent of them, particularly in the california delegation tonight who may make themselves known vocally and visually and that is something hillary clinton is going to have to deal with even if she gives most important speech of her life. >> all right. very different tones between the republican convention and this convention. who has done a better job in reaching their constituents and also beyond? >> i think when you look at these conventions, the democrats have just been masterful in the lineup that they've had. athletes, famous people from hollywood, and they've had what the republicans have not had with ch is a massive lineup of
political leaders in the party. president obama giving that tour de force last night, michelle obama this is something that donald trump lacked at their convention. i think that's a key difference. we've had a big contingent from california as well. been there for hillary clinton. i think when it comes to just the logistics of the convention, the way it was laid out, the theme with victims of violence, gun violence and all through the four nights, i think this has been showing how the democrats really had a lot more experience and a lot more ground game going into the convention. >> all right. thank you so much for your insight. >> now abc 7 news reporter anthony will be live from philadelphia on the news at 5:00. we'll have reports from philadelphia tomorrow on the abc 7 morning news from 4:30 until 7:00 a.m. >> today german chancellor afrpg la america will stood by the
