I’m going to vote for Hillary in the primary. I think she’s smarter than Bernie and that her plans seem better thought out. I guess I’m an incrementalist not a revolutionary.
But there’s really no question that Sandersism is the future:
Among all voters under age 30, Sanders beat Clinton by a huge 84-15 percent margin, another result similar to Iowa.
I think analysts underplayed how much Obama dominated the youth vote the last two general elections. It was completely unprecedented for a candidate in a general presidential election to win the youth vote by 20+ points while losing some other age groups. There’s no way that didn’t herald a new direction for the country politically, in the long term.
And there’s no way that Sanders’ domination of the youth vote in the primaries doesn’t herald a new direction for the Democratic party.
