It’s the wishful thinking of our future generation that gives those Hilary losers some hope in this doom and gloom time after Donald Trump was elected.
Some groups even gave it their best to engage millennials in the “Unconvention Initiative“. This Initiative was to engage millennials in the 2016 Election & spark dialogue on the top issues facing young people in America.
Likely an effort to increase the dismal 36% of millennials who actually voted.
Survey Monkey also came up with this electoral map had the millennial vote actually counted (This went viral on Twitter by the way . . . silly millennials)
Millennial writers such as Celestae Katz ( a proclaimed senior political correspondent) who wrote an article for Policy.mic suggesting that if millennials would get out and vote, they would overwhelmingly elect Clinton as their next president.
According to SurveyMonkey, which is offering mapping based on more than 30,000 interviews conducted since Oct. 8 and weighted by state-level voter demographics, Clinton dominates among the younger set.
“The data among millennials point to big and widespread advantages for Clinton heading into the final stretch. The challenges some Democrats feared she might face with young voters after a tough primary fight against Bernie Sanders haven’t materialized,” Jon Cohen, SurveyMonkey’s chief research officer, said to Mic. (Policy.mic)
Too bad they got it dead ass wrong. Another wise predictor. In fact, the Democrats were so split from the Bernie debacle, millennials ran around like little chicks who lost mother hen. Note to self: Don’t look at survey monkey for election results or predictions.
So what went so terribly wrong? Well, the millennials just didn’t get out and vote, and now they are some of the most vocal “not-my -president” protesters in the country.
In a nut-shell, Hilary alienated many millennial voters, likely because many of them where in the Sanders camp and couldn’t forgive Hilary for undermining Bernie’s campaign and “steal” the Democratic nomination.
She also under-performed with many millennial voters.
Forbes reported that when compared to President Obama’s victory in 2008, Hillary Clinton significantly under-performed among younger voters. However, millennials are not increasing in number of the past 3 elections, staying steady at 36% of the voters in an already dwindling voter pool.
Of course the wishful thinking of survey monkey’s electoral map showing Clinton with 504 electoral votes and Trump with only 23 went viral on Twitter after the election.
Those Silly millennials . . . wishful thinking. It does give them some hope, however. Millennials such as Raya Encheva tweeted this:
