The young may be voting for Sanders because of his views on College and College Loans, as well as other issues of particular interest to them, but for those well into their thirties and older, why are they moving in his direction as well?

Chris.....Doesn't Bernie's AGE give U pause? U have to hope he has a fabulous running mate.His age concerns me! How much do we know about his overall health?I just couldn't, wouldn't vote for Hillary for dog warden.IMHO she's a blatant criminal.
No it doesn't give me pause, he's released his medical records and been given a clean bill of health. Warren as his running mate would be a dream ticket. One can always hope. I will never vote Hillary either. On that we agree!
I have to say I really like Elizabeth. Too bad she didn't jump in. I believe she'd have given Hill a good hard run for her money. Warren would be an excellent choice. Call Bernie & tell him!! LOL
I appreciate the thought you put into that post... I wrote a hub called 'all votes are equal' - 3rd party fails because for every well thought out vote, there is a vote made with no more depth or understanding of matters than "I always vote Dem/Rep"
I hope at this point that some people are breaking that annoying habit of always pushing the R or D. They see now it's pretty much voting "lesser of evils" and are starting to wake up to reality. Maybe Sanders can do what Nader couldn't before.
Interesting points, and while I am not confident about a 'free healthcare' system, I can understand the point of view, especially since Obamacare has made Insurance significantly more expensive for most 'working class' families.
As always, I love reading your posts. I hear you, I totally understand the feeling... its like O.M.G.... I can't believe it... but the best option we have out of this mess may indeed be Trump! O.M.G.... I mean... really...
The problem as I see it... I like Bernie, nice old guy, lots of good and IDEAL ideas for a more perfect world.
But the world isn't perfect, not close, what we need is a real bastard in there who will do what needs to be done, and gets how economics w
Ken, that's not narrowing it down enough.The only 1 on the Rt. who's not a real bastard is Dr. Ben! But it's true..we need someone who bites hard!
Well Ok ... Cruz... Lawyer, lifetime politician, what does he know about business or economy or foreign nations?
Rubio... similar to Cruz, more intelligent and level headed guy, but not experienced enough. Bush... just no, no, and no.
& Kasich,who's sure he's Reagan reincarnate..(Sorry John, UR not Ron) Marco's so young, he needs a Nanny. So it's Cruz or Trump. Cruz can always choose a sharp business/economics person as VP. Trump needs his ego trimmed down. We'll see??
Unfortunately Paula that's not how it works, if the Pres is focused on social issues and agendas, then that's the direction the Administration goes... it takes someone who will prioritize the economy and trade to fix the issues. VP doesn't hack it.
So...the VP is more or less like a Trophy wife? Oh well, so much for my Political career.
Paula, I have to admit I'm a bit shocked to see you talking about Cruz or Rubio. I personally don't want women sent back to the 1950's ;) but we can agree to disagree I still think you're super cool lol
Chris..I can understand ur shock. It's my belief that despite their leanings, they will not be able to get anything passed that will hurt women.They can only try & pout. I wouldn't consider either if I didn't despise Hillary w/ my entire being.
