PHILADELPHIA - A number of Sanders supporters walked out of the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night despite the Vermont senator's attempts to unify the party.

Sen. Bernie Sanders himself was the one to put Hillary Clinton atop the ticket, calling for her to be named the nominee by acclamation during Tuesday night's proceedings.

Some discouraged Sanders supporters said they were done with the Democratic Party, calling it the "DemExit."
