Poll: Sanders support among young voters drops sharply

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) has seen his support drop sharply among the young voters that have powered his rise in Democratic politics, according to a new poll.

The survey from Morning Consult finds that Sanders’s support among people between the ages of 18 and 29 has dropped from 45 percent in March to 33 percent in May.

Sanders’s support with the youngest voters, who propelled his surprising challenge to then-Democratic contender Hillary Clinton in 2016, has steadily declined in the poll since topping out at 46 percent in late February.....

I'm hoping the old crank is history by autumn.

My bitch is not so much with the old crank himself, but with his supporters, most of them white college kids raised in reasonably affluent homes with their hands utterly devoid of callouses.

They don't plan to do any work in a Sanders regime; they're hoping to sit around being the theoriticians, the philosphers, the ideology-formulators, while the rest of us sweat and toil and labor.

5. Im still not sure how he can run. He is not a Dem, and the

Dems passed a rule last year that people who are not in the party can’t run for the nomination. They didn’t call it the “Bernie Sanders rule”, but that’s what it was...

Of course, the DNC has already argued in court that they don’t have to follow their own rules, so who knows.

9. Those advocating for the "revolution"

are firmly convinced that they will be in the nomenklatura when the revolution comes.
