Joe BidenCongratulations to our presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden!

My worry with Bernie is less older Cuban Americans but

more the over 65 demographic nationally. This age group votes in force and are, by far, to be most hostile toward a hint of socialism. Sanders finished 5th in Nevada with the most dependable voter demographic nationally. Young people will come out but how many? I'm around teens all day and they seem a bit oblivious. Are the young adults nationally as political as the ones at the rallies, ect? What say you?

1. It's going to be tough to win Florida

 

if Sanders is our nominee. I still think he can win but Florida will probably be a lost cause.

2. Centrist Hillary lost Florida. Why does anyone think any Dem...

 

but for, say, an Obama, could pull off victory in that state?

What's the breakdown of "older Cuban-American" votes for Hillary versus Trump? If Hillary couldn't win those Republican votes, why is there an expectation that Bernie should?

7. Older Cuban-Americans are over 65 and tend to vote Republican.

 

DU is in a panic over how we're hosed in Florida because... "Bernie." No one will answer why he should win that state when Hillary didn't.

Voters over 65 tend to skew Republican. Did Hillary carry that voting bloc? Is Bernie expected to? Or any candidate with a "D" behind his or her name?

3. This younger generation is massive

 

In fact they outnumber boomers. They are having an impact. I think it's relevant that that some of their parents were born after the USSR ceased to be. It's a different world from the one Boomers are most familiar with. I have been watching younger politicians and political activists for a few years now, and I trust them more than conventional wisdom they are proving wrong.
