Hillary and the Millennial voters

According to the media, Hillary isn't really reaching the millennial voters. They don't really know her and maybe it's true that she has a harder time connecting to them.

What do you think Hillary needs to do to jazz up the millennials? Does she have someone on her staff who can advise her?

First time and young voters could be very critical for Hillary. She needs to find ways to reach out to them and get them jazzed about voting.

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has a plan to get people to vote

Square CEO Jack Dorsey wants to get you to the polls.

He tweeted Saturday that all U.S. retailers, shops and restaurants that use Square -- Dorsey's payment processing platform -- will be able to add a link to their customers' digital receipts to register to vote.

"We can't let this be the first presidential election in 50 years without full protections for voters of color," he wrote in a follow-up tweet.

In case you're not familiar, Square is the company that Dorsey started after he co-founded Twitter in 2006. He is currently the CEO of both companies.

Dorsey is an avid tweeter, but he doesn't typically speak out on politics.

But he has praised Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the distant past.

After she spoke about internet freedom and censorship in 2010 while she was Secretary of State, Dorsey tweeted some praise.

Dorsey did co-host a talk in 2015 about female entrepreneurship with Clinton's daughter, Chelsea, sponsored by the Clinton Global Initiative.

Court Rejects Ohio's System for Removing Voters from Rolls

In the latest court victory for voting rights, a federal appeals panel on Friday ruled against Ohio's controversial procedure for removing inactive voters from the rolls. The decision could give a modest boost to Hillary Clinton in a crucial swing state.

By 2-1, a panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit reversed a lower court ruling that had upheld Ohio's procedure. The appeals court did not explicitly order a stop to the system, but sent the case back to the lower court to decide on a remedy.

At issue was Ohio's "Supplemental Procedure," in which voters are removed from the rolls if they haven't voted in the last three national elections — including midterms — or in any state or local elections in between, and then don't respond to a letter asking them to confirm their address. It could lead to someone who voted in the historic 2008 presidential election, but sat out 2012 and all of the non-presidential elections in the interim, being removed, even if they planned to vote this fall.

Trump team builds 'psychological profile' of Clinton for debate Read more: http://www.politico.com/

The GOP nominee and his team are taking a more sophisticated approach to debate preparation than previously known.

Donald Trump’s team has created a detailed analysis of Hillary Clinton’s debate style — including her body language and verbal tics — with the goal of helping the GOP nominee exploit weaknesses during Monday’s debate, according to three sources familiar with Trump’s preparations.
The “psychological profile,” as the analysis is being called, is based on a statistical analysis of videos from 16 years' worth of Clinton’s debates, dating back to her 2000 campaign for Senate in New York, according to the operatives. They said it was assembled with assistance from a political data firm called Cambridge Analytica that specializes in “psychographic” modeling of voters and donors, and that Trump’s top advisers have been pleased with the results.

Palmer Luckey: The Facebook Near Billionaire Secretly Funding Trump’s Meme Machine

Palmer Luckey—founder of Oculus—is funding a Trump group that circulates dirty memes about Hillary Clinton.

A Silicon Valley titan is putting money behind an unofficial Donald Trump group dedicated to “shitposting” and circulating Internet memes maligning Hillary Clinton.

Oculus founder Palmer Luckey financially backed a pro-Trump political organization called Nimble America, a self-described “social welfare 501(c)4 non-profit” in support of the Republican nominee.
Luckey sold his virtual reality company Oculus to Facebook for $2 billion in 2014, and Forbes estimates his current net worth to be $700 million. The 24-year-old told The Daily Beast that he had used the pseudonym “NimbleRichMan” on Reddit with a password given him to by the organization’s founders.

Nimble America says it’s dedicated to proving that “shitposting is powerful and meme magic is real,” according to the company’s introductory statement, and has taken credit for a billboard its founders say was posted outside of Pittsburgh with a cartoonishly large image of Clinton’s face alongside the words “Too Big to Jail.”
