Response to Thinkingabout (Reply #2)

Tue Dec 1, 2015, 09:07 PM

22. Two problems.

They don't vote and even if they favor the Democratic take on issues, they tend to register NPA (no party affiliation). The NPA registration means they can't vote in the primary in closed primary states like Florida. This is a huge disadvantage for Sanders. I compared 70-year-old registered voter participation with 20-year-old registered voter participation in 2014 in my area of Florida. Prepare to vomit. 70-yr-olds voted at a 77% rate while 20-yr-olds voted at a 22% rate. Winning hearts and minds without registering people to vote and getting out the vote is a recipe for disaster.
