Response to Iliyah (Reply #11)

15. Yes

This is what I posted on Facebook in response to this article, I have a much longer, better parsed out response, but you know, Facebook.

He knew. Unless he is stupid enough to disqualify himself from the presidency, he knew. I think one of the things his campaign did, was followed on-line trends of Hillary hate and adjusted his attack message accordingly--the idea that he would come ahead with the youth vote. I think they thought older voters are not as engaged with social media.
Just one of the problems with that, is a lot of the anti-Hillary memes are lies straight from the RW. Another is that millennials, while more reliant on social media for information, are in no way the only ones who use it, and use it effectively.

(Of note, Sanders team also mismanaged outreach to the African American vote to a degree that was embarrassingly awkward. There are other egregious mistakes his campaign made)

This group and others like it, the hashtags, Twitter, Instagram--all of it--sent an effective and truthful message about Hillary. She is an enormously complex person, eminently qualified to be POTUS, and that becomes clearer and clearer once the bullshit is scaped away. I think Hillary used social media with far more savvy than Sanders.
