HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - As many Democratic delegates prepare to travel to Philadelphia next week, party leaders are calling for a united convention. Just how unified the party will be depends on who you ask.

As a Clinton pledged delegate, Eddie Sherrod is hoping for a good week in Pennsylvania.  “She is the person that can bring the country together," says Sherrod.

That sense of party unity isn't shared with Bernie Sanders pledged delegate Patrick Doyle.  “I think it’s gonna be pretty contested. I think there’s going to be a lot of people that are upset," he says.

Doyle says he wasn't interested in politics until Bernie came along, and now that Clinton has the nomination, his vote is her's to win or lose. “I think it’s going to depend on what happens at the convention and also how Hillary Clinton acts from here on out," says Doyle.

Sherrod says the choice should be clear for Bernie supporters. “The Bernie people doesn’t have another choice. If they want anything like what Bernie has proposed to them," says Sherrod.

While there are many political points that divide these two delegates from the same delegation, they seem to agree that Donald Trump will not be able to attract the Sander's faithful.  “I think it’s absolutely ridiculous to think that any Bernie supporters would see Donald Trump as a viable candidate," says Doyle.

“If you didn’t realize it, you’d think he is God because everything he said, he implied that he’s gonna do it," says Sherrod.

Doyle says in addition to Clinton, he's considering voting for Green Party candidate Dr. Jill Stein or Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.
