    Clinton Losing Millennial Support Nationally and in Key States

    http://www.cnbc.com/2016/09/18/clinton-losing-millennial-support-nationally-and-in-key-states.html

    New polls released this week suggests Hillary Clinton has a growing problem with millennial voters and that's a major concern for the Democratic presidential nominee.

    Both national polls and surveys in swing states show Clinton has seen a slide with voters younger than 35, particularly when Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are factored in.

    A national Quinnipiac poll showed Clinton capturing 31 percent of the vote among voters 18-to-34 years of age and a slim 5-point lead over Trump. In August Clinton had 48 percent of that vote and a 24-point lead over Trump.​


    Interestingly, The Donald is leading Hillary in all age groups.

    Then those people are being dumb because Hillary along with Bernie have a chance to enact some of the things they like Bernie for. Gary Johnson, Jill Stein will never have a chance to do that. Protest votes are dumb. They will not take these people where they want to go. And Trump sure won't be doing anything for them either. If they were fans of Bernie, they should listen to Bernie. Not be blinded by celebrity and demagoguery.

    Hillary will not implement Bernie’s programs or policies.

    Sure she will. Maybe not exactly as Bernie would, but with both Bernie and Warren promising to work with her and keep on her, there's no way nothing will happen. Is Trump going to work with the likes of the "communist" and "Pocahontas" to enact progressive policies that millennials care about? I don't think so.

    Hillary’s a corporatist warmonger psychopath and ally of the big banks and Wall Street who doesn’t share Bernie’s vision on healthcare, education, big money reform, etc. Hillary and the DNC have no legal obligation to implement any of Bernie’s policies they have “promised” to implement—none. Hillary and the DNC will not implement any of Bernie’s policies—none.

    Hillary will enact very few to no Sanders policies. Hillary Clinton will be a mix of HW, and W with HW's class.

    We don't know either way and I do believe she would carry out some of her promises made on her website and in speeches but, MadeTheSwitch, if Hillary doesn't work to help America will you take the blame for issues that occur since you seem so absolutely sure she will try what Obama had not?

    If Nixon and Kennedy could just about get bipartisan, proper single payer passed, and how corporations here in 2016 would love it because they would not longer have to offer as many benefits to lure talent... anything is technically possible. One thing that seems universal, Americans of all sides and creeds seem to be fatigued from being fleeced. If nothing else, George Takei will put out another campy commercial to distract people with.

    It's not like Millenials would break from playing Pokémon Go to actually go out and vote.

    She will keep it the same way Obama promised to close Guantanamo within 100 days of taking office.

    Yup. It's okay to make the things we use to then blame the people for purchasing and use.

    Millennials must be either really aware and/or really dumb. When I was in high school, kids didn't care apart from the latest video games. 20 years before that, the kids were into television and music. 20 years before then it was music and newspapers... There's always something... so what if it's something else?

    Will you take the blame whoever the hell you are voting for? If you vote 3rd party and that causes either Hillary or Trump to win will you take the blame? Geez. Silly question. I won't be there holding her hand and making her sign bills and EO's while steering her away from others. Like every election I will vote for the best candidate and hope they do a good job. Just as I am sure you will.
    That's not a policy. That's a vauge statement with no meaning.

    Hillary has the endorsement of 92-year-old George Herbert Walker Bush. That ought to get her the millennial votes.

    Seriously? Haha :p Trump is on record praising Universal Healthcare in other nations, and says in plain English that ‘we have to take care of everybody.’

    Donald Trump on Health Care

    http://www.ontheissues.org/2016/Donald_Trump_Health_Care.htm

    In "The America We Deserve" Trump wrote that he supported universal healthcare and a system that would mirror Canada's government-run healthcare service.


    In New Hampshire, Trump stands by universal health care in face of Cruz attacks

    https://www.statnews.com/2016/02/05/trump-cruz-universal-health-care/

    Donald Trump is remaining firm on a sticking point for many Republican voters — government-funded health care for all.

    One of his top rivals for the Republican presidential nomination, Texas Senator Ted Cruz, has hit Trump hard on this issue in recent weeks. Cruz’s campaign has dubbed Trump’s plan “Trumpcare” and likened it to “Hillarycare” and “Obamacare.” Last week, a super PAC supporting Cruz ran an attack ad on the subject in Iowa.

    But Trump isn’t backing down.

    “We do need health care for all people,” Trump said at a rally here this week. “What are we gonna do, let people die in the street?”

    Trump has said he doesn’t support Obamacare but does believe the government should pay for health insurance for all. “I wanna get rid of Obamacare. I want to get you something good,” he said at the rally. He didn’t offer specifics.

    DNC should have allowed the voters to decide the nominee. DNC is dumb unless it was necessary to reward the Fundraiser-in-Chief.

    Didn't work for the GOP either when they called Iowa for Romney in 2012 when Santorum won. Maybe people are just tired of this type of politics.

    Leaving aside your hyperbole (which I admit is a tedious chore), Clinton plans incremental change, and a bipartisan example of related legislation is alreadsy in the works for next term. Oh ye of so little faith in Ameriocan democracy: do ye not notice that government actually takes notice of the natives' restlessness?
    It's not time to give up on the grand experiment yet.

    By the way it looks like the Senate will flip to the blues. So even if Trump wins there'll be a bipartisan look to overall power in Congress, ready to halt him in his tracks no matter if he turns out to be a flaming liberal or a flaming right winger. Meanwhile of course I hope for the incrementalist Clinton to win and deal from the center.

    It may even be a race to see which side of the aisle in the House moves to impeach Trump first in the unlikey event he wins, even though the House will stay a creature of the Republicans. The GOP has taken the measure of their candidate and found him seriously lacking already. He's not even doing a decent job supporting the Republicans in their down-ballot contests.

    Hey you never know. People fell in love with Bernie. GHWBush is lookin' good to me today, frankly. I no longer care he didn't know the price of a gallon of milk or understand how a supermarket scanner worked. He understood how to be a President of the United States of America. Plus unlike his son, he had the good sense to stop outside Baghdad the first time... that was a mission accomplished. That he endorses Clinton sends a message that she too understands where to draw lines.

    I admit some bias since I'm currently reading Meacham's bio of Bush the father. It's a great read.

    Old tired wicked and toxic, Hillary is fading away by the day. Now even her Hollywierd supporters are showing signs of desperation as they wake up to reality.

    Each day that ticks off is one less day she has to recover in time for the Coronation. Will she ride to the party in the Gilded Chariot or be escorted away in shackles... :eek:
