Who are the college kids going to vote for, between Hillary and Trump?
Anyone who thinks Trump gets their votes is out of his batshit crazy mind.
So, 50% stay home? Wow, that would be a shocker. They are going to throw a temper tantrum and hold their breath till they are purple, with the craziest GOP candidate ever looming out there and Scalia’s replacement on the line? Great citizens there.
There are TWO reasons for voting. One is FOR something. The other is AGAINST someone and something. (I know, brilliant. . . No one has ever thought of that before…)
They will NEVER get their free tuition if the Dems don’t win. This election is THE turning point.
They want more Liberal. Fine. Not now, but it’s coming. “PATIENCE, my Pretties!”
More Liberal (eventually) probably means one step at a time, Hillary now, and build a Democratic sanity back into government. The government isn’t dysfunctional BECAUSE of the Dems, but in spite of the Dems’ best efforts to STOP the idiocy and criminality and deregulation.
Eight years of Hillary will mark 24 out of the last 32 years that we had a Dem in the WH. ONLY that and the years we had Dem majorities in Congress were sane years. Not perfect, but not insane.
The Repugs are self-immolating before our eyes. This is a GREAT opportunity to make BIG inroads into the majorities in Congress. The Senate is more or less a lock for 51 or better. The House – in the House we need 30 wins. That’s tough.
Which is why we need COATTAILS.
It might be worth noting that in 2006, Bush’s last off-year election, when the GOP brand lost credibility, the Dems won 32 and took over. The GOoPer brand isn’t any more popular today than then. And if Trump really DOES have a ceiling of 35-40%, and if the establishment Repugs are talking LOUD about bailing on this election (if not the party), this is a royal opportunity.
