Vanquished White House hopeful Bernie Sanders called on supporters to get behind Hillary Clinton as the Democratic convention kicked off on Monday, pressing for a united front against "demagogue" Donald Trump.

Sanders' call - met with cheers and some jeers from supporters - came as Democrats were shocked by polls suggesting Trump had pulled into the lead ahead of Clinton in the run-up to the November 8th vote.

Clinton will make history this week in Philadelphia when she formally accepts the Democratic presidential nomination - the first woman to lead a major party's White House ticket.

But Democrats have struggled to come together after a fractious primary campaign between the former secretary of state and her leftist rival Sanders, a US senator from Vermont.
