Hillary has lost the under 45 vote, there are only two basic choices to make and it's getting late

One choice is for the Clinton campaign to try and get the younger crowd back, some planned spontaneity and perhaps some stern lectures from 75 year old icons might do it, then again maybe not.

The other basic choice is for the Clinton campaign to so revolt the under 45 crowd with their behavior that the less than geriatric just stay home out of disgust for all things political and the olds then triumph since we evidently as a group which I am ashamed to say I belong to will swallow any amount of the most grotesque slime and proclaim it caviar.

I guess we will see in the next few weeks and months which path the Clinton campaign is going to take, win young people with a bold vision or turn them off with a tsunami of slime.

1. It is very late in the game for Hillary to offer a bold vision.

She's the candidate for incremental change. That is set in stone.

The Clinton campaign has chosen the "Swift Boat" route. They are going to throw everything they've got at Sanders' strengths and try to get enough slime to stick. They've started with a completely dishonest and disgusting smear of Bernie's long, genuine history of support for civil rights progress.

2. She'd have to find one, first.

 

And after all the speaking she's done against bold visions, it's gonna be a really hard sell.

3. I'm really pissed that the dnc has decided to drive away millions of young voters

 

I don't see how the party remains viable through a Clinton presidency, even if she does manage to win

5. The Hillary Presidency has become the Precious, for which all must be sacrificed

It makes me start wondering about promises made and favors asked.

6. Really?

Huh.

Well, this poll shows 53% of 30-44 year olds supporting Clinton:

Go figure.

7. Thanks for your input

This is the most interesting election I can recall, another perspective is not unwelcome.

I think the Clinton campaign reaction will let us know what the polls they don't tell us about look like.
