Everybody’s going to have an explanation for this:
…55 percent of those polled, which included likely voters from ages 18 to 29, preferred a Democrat to maintain control of the White House in 2016, compared to 40 percent who wanted a Republican. But that is a far cry from the 67 percent of millennials who voted for President Obama in 2012. The I.O.P. nationwide poll was conducted online by GfK March 18 to April 1 with a random sample of 3,034 adults aged 18 to 29. The margin of sampling error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
Mine is going to be ‘school lunches.’ Don’t laugh: we have been inflicting horribly insufficient food on our teenagers for the last six years. And by ‘we’ I mean ‘the Democrats.’ But even if you do laugh… eh. The real story here is that a key element of the Democratic 2016 coalition is splintering. Then again, they’re all key elements. And they’re all splintering.
Such a pity. Such a pity.
