2. The young are better judges of character

 

because they haven't been jaded by our political system and they don't generally watch much cable propaganda. The older folks are moving to Bernie because they can now see clearly what a lifetime of voting against their own best interests has gotten them.

3. Could be a lot of things, 1st Bernie makes old people remember their youth.

2nd Bernie is for tuition grants and expanding social security

3rd Young people want opportunity and a future, old people see continuity of things they value through gifts to the young.

7. The new Service economy and the coming retirement crisis..

The Service economy and it's crap jobs and lousy benefits for the masses. People middle aged who lose their jobs cannot find work unless underemployed and paid lots less. People can't just work hard and prosper any more,

Middle aged job insecurity and the upcoming retirement crisis. Bernie gets it, Hillary and the Third Way Corporatists exacerbate the problems with their openness to "entitlement reform" and free trade race to the bottom.

9. The old get it because we grew up when the middle class was thriving.

And we have watched it being taken away over the last 30 years.

We want an America with a thriving middle class once again for our children and grandchildren.
