And yet the youth vote could be the essential key to victory in 2020 Fiendish Thingy Dec 2019 #90
Every segment of the Democratic electorate is essential to victory, some more than others StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #94
Excellent point. Of course The reason is because they are taken for granted just like the African still_one Dec 2019 #4
Do you really think you by voters are taken for granted? StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #7

I agree...Hillary should not say anything about 16 or Sanders at this moment...she should not Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #16
Hillary's response to you telling her to shut up: StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #19
What is the point? The idea is to win an election. I love Hillary and worked my butt off for her Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #28
We need to move on from 2016!! Hillary should be uniting Democrats!! InAbLuEsTaTe Dec 2019 #40
I agree with you. We need to be united. Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #53
So should Bernie. The Velveteen Ocelot Dec 2019 #58
Yeah you are right too...a bad situation. Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #75
Paleeeze. What kind of audience does Sirota or Turner have compared to Clinton? progressoid Dec 2019 #132
The size of the audience is irrelevant to the message. The Velveteen Ocelot Dec 2019 #133
Sirota has 2838 followers on Twitter. Clinton has 26 million. progressoid Dec 2019 #135
Which tells me that a whole hell of a lot of people are interested in what she has to say StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #142
The issue is "what" she says. progressoid Dec 2019 #145

You're so right about Hillary... she needs to move on and stop the devisive comments re Bernie. InAbLuEsTaTe Dec 2019 #35
Hillary is so four years ago StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #44

Hillary saying something you don't agree with doesn't make her comment "divisive." StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #65
I just don't want a repeat of 16. Trump must go. Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #76

The older voters , inclined to be more moderate, always turn out ritapria Dec 2019 #10
The issue is not older Democrats...it is the independents we need who will turn out for Biden...but Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #23
Why should moderate voters turn out for a more progressive candidate who doesn't excite them? StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #49
Older and black voters have always been the most reliable voters. The Velveteen Ocelot Dec 2019 #60
Because older voters are more reliable. That's simply a fact. kcr Dec 2019 #14
So we should take them for granted and just nominate someone they don't like? Demsrule86 Dec 2019 #174

So, we take older and black voters for granted while smooching the tender bottoms of the young folk? StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #54

Where did you get this ridiculous idea? at140 Dec 2019 #61
It's so obvious... but glad you said it, since the notion has apparently escaped some people. InAbLuEsTaTe Dec 2019 #118
I'm fairly concerned. Act_of_Reparation Dec 2019 #64
I don't think Warren and black voters are a problem StarfishSaver Dec 2019 #67

There's no need to refute ridiculous propositions. Act_of_Reparation Dec 2019 #166

I understand why you would feel that way. Act_of_Reparation Dec 2019 #168
You don't know my age group Dem4Life1102 Dec 2019 #169
Does your age somehow alter reality? Act_of_Reparation Dec 2019 #170
No it doesn't alter reality Dem4Life1102 Dec 2019 #171
I also have concerns about independents. lark Dec 2019 #88
Is there evidence that these groups will stay home if Sanders or Warren is the nominee? Fiendish Thingy Dec 2019 #89
