    A new survey of 18-to-34-year-olds found that if the Democratic primary were held today, 46% of millennials would vote for Sanders, while 35% would back Hillary Clinton—a shift from national polls, which give Clinton a more than 10-point lead over Sanders. In a Republican primary, Trump would win the votes of 26% of millennials, the survey found, followed by Ben Carson at 11%, a better showing than the retired doctor is currently seeing in national polls.

    The survey, by USA Today/Rock The Vote, also found that millennials are more likely to be Democrats than Republicans, and more likely to be conservative on economic policy and liberal on social policy. Millennials also support action on climate change—8 in 10 want America to transition to clean energy by 2030—and on gun control, with 82% saying the U.S. should pass a law requiring background checks for all gun purchases.

    For millennials, Sanders is a grandpa who gets them

    ...People are especially stunned by the power this old man has with young voters, building a clear lead over Clinton in this demographic in key states, according to a USA Today/Rock the Vote poll.

    Some find this reminiscent of the Obama campaign, fueled in large part by the young people its "change" message managed to engage. But this wasn't so surprising with a fresh-faced young black senator. What's shocking and setting the media ablaze today is that many millennials seem even more invigorated by a 74-year-old white man from Vermont calling for revolution.

    Just about everything that the Sanders campaign espouses hits home for the millennial generation -- even more so than Obama's run in 2008...

    Fortunately after a certain age many are no longer baffled by bullshit. But as we know some will always be gullible and baffled...

    “Millennials Rising” Super PAC Is 95% Funded by Old Men

    According to recent FEC filings, 95 percent of the donations to the Super PAC “Millennials Rising” — originally called “Millennials for Jeb” — comes from men 60 years and older.

    ...91 percent, comes from the snowy-haired 72-year-old billionaire Robert A. Day. He is the grandson of Superior Oil founder William Myron Keck and a former investment manager. Day has also given $1 million to the pro-Bush Super PAC Right to Rise.

    The twitter account of Millennials Rising describes Millennials Rising as “started and run by Millennials.” Its website calls for “limited government” and simultaneously decries both the national debt and taxes as too high.

    Four other non-millennials have donated to Millennials Rising, three of whom are listed in FEC filings as “retired”:

    Guess which elephant goes with this one.
