Hillary Clinton will need to listen to America's younger voters if she wins the Democratic nomination and hopes to do well in the fall general election, her rival for the spot, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, said Monday.

"It is a two-way thing, and it's not me, I don't control millions of people," Sanders told CNN's Chris Cuomo on the network's "New Day" program."But the Clinton campaign is going to have to make the case to those young people that in fact they are prepared for some real fundamental changes in this country, and that's a case they've not been able to make."

Further, Sanders said that Clinton has "moved to the left" in response to the initiatives that he's introduced, but he still does not think she has responded well to issues that concern younger voters, and conceded the former Secretary of State's campaign is "very good at rhetoric."

Clinton is leading Sanders by 54 percent to 41 percent in New York heading into that state's primary Tuesday, according to Real Clear Politics polling averages, but Sanders said he still believes he can pull out a win, if there is a high turnout among working people and young voters.

Meanwhile, in an interview on the "CBS This Morning" program, Sanders bashed a New York election law that prevents independent voters from casting ballots Tuesday.

"It's a bad New York state election law," Sanders said. "What it says to the many hundreds of thousands or more independents who would like to vote tomorrow for me or for anybody else, they can't participate. I think that that's wrong and that does hurt us because we win independent voters about two to one."

Sanders, like Republican front-runner Donald Trump, does not agree with the primary delegate allocation process, saying that the superdelegates allowed in the Democratic primary are used to skew delegates toward the establishment candidate — in this case, Hillary Clinton.

But still, Sanders plans to stay in  the race until the Democratic convention in Philadelphia this July, and he plans to "fight for every single vote that's out there."
