Hillary is getting slaughtered when it comes to the youth vote. Among those under age 35, Bernie has an 11 point lead over Hillary, and it’s even greater when you narrow the age range younger.
Young voters may not pay a lot of attention to politics, but they all seem to have it figured out that Hillary isn’t trustworthy. It’s not like you have to dig deep to find a scandal of which she’s been the subject.
As Breitbart reported, one young voter told Hillary that many of his peers find her dishonest at the most recent Democratic Presidential Town Hall.
Democratic presidential candidate former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was told “I’ve heard from quite a few people my age that they think you’re dishonest” by a first-time caucusgoer at Monday’s Democratic Presidential Town Hall on Monday.
“Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and I just don’t see the same enthusiasm from younger people for you. In fact, I’ve heard from quite a few people my age that they think you’re dishonest, but I’d like to hear from you on why you feel the enthusiasm isn’t there.”
Hillary responded, “Well, I think it really depends upon who you’re seeing and talking to. you know, today in Oskaloosa, I spent time with about ten high school students who are enthusiastically working for me. I see young people across the state who are doing the same. But I’m totally happy to see young people involved in any way. That’s what we want. And we want to have a good primary, to pick a nominee, and then, we want to have everybody join together to make sure we win in November. Which after all, is the purpose of this whole campaign.”
She continued, “[Y]ou know, look, I’ve been around a long time. People have thrown all kinds of things at me. and you know, I can’t keep up with it. I just keep going forward. They fall by the wayside, they come up with these outlandish things, they make these charges, I just keep going forward because there’s nothing to it. They throw all this stuff at me, and I’m still standing. But if you’re new to politics, if it’s the first time you’ve really paid attention, you go, ‘Oh my gosh, look at all of this.’ And you have to say to yourself, ‘Why are they throwing all of that?’ Well I’ll tell you why, because I’ve been on the front lines of change and progress since I was your age.”
As for the rest of her pathetic reply, watch the video below:
After I heard her say “People have thrown all kinds of things at me. and you know, I can’t keep up with it” I thought to myself “no kidding.”
There’s an entire “Clinton administration controversies” category on Wikipedia, which is composed of 47 different pages. Were she to address her scandals her answer would’ve had to be hours long.
Maybe that’s why so many young voters find her to be dishonest.
