Question: Should HRC win the nomination

on how many issues will she change her positions,
which she holds now in the primary season?

October 11, 2015

A somewhat serious question to the HRC supporters,

and no, this is not meant as snark.

I just checked the numbers of millennials in the US
population, and it varies between 74 and 80 million.

I have talked to some of them during Bernie rallies
and checked them on the social media.Many of them
are willing to join the democratic party, because the
are fired up for Bernie.

If 25% of them are hardcore Bernie supporters, that
would mean about 18 million, and they feel deceived
by the party due to HRC's nomination, can the party
afford to lose that many younger people?

As far as I have read the numbers of millennials are
by now far greater than the ones of the baby boomers.

Tomorrow Bernie will be in Boulder CO

A fellow volunteer has just told me that she has a ticket
for me. I look forward to it.

I think that the campaign made a big mistake though.
They gave out tickets for this rally, but only in
Boulder on Thursday and today. They should have
had a place in Denver for those as well, since we
are only 30 miles away. During workdays though it
was hard for people to drive all that way.Well, we
shall see.
