This isn’t surprising. College students are a key demographic for Bernie’s campaign.

BuzzFeed News reports:

Bernie Sanders Canvassers Are Swarming College Campuses To Turn Out The Youth Vote

It’s 25 degrees in Ames, and students at Iowa State University are bundled up in parkas and puffer jackets, speed-walking past piles of snow on the way to classes and meetings near the school’s library. In the middle of all the confusion is Dhruv Raturi, a 26-year-old international graduate student who won’t be participating in Monday’s presidential caucus but who’s still trying to get other students on campus to commit to caucusing for Bernie Sanders.

“Bernie stickers! Hey! Do you want a Bernie sticker?! They’re rainbow-colored!”

“Hey, guys! Are you planning on voting in like, literally, less than a week?”

“Do you know about Bernie Sanders?” Raturi, an engineering student, politely yelled to people passing by while waving flyers with Sanders’ policies and instructions on how to get registered to caucus before Monday.

Young voters have always been a key part of the Sanders coalition. In 2016, Sanders won 84% of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 during the Iowa caucus, according to Iowa entrance polls, and he has focused on campaigning on college campuses in the state in the lead up to this year’s caucus. Last fall, Sanders hosted rallies at universities across Iowa during a grassroots tailgate tour, and on Saturday he hosted another rally near Iowa State University with Portugal the Man and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“The younger generation today is, in my view, the most progressive young generation in the history of this country, and for every three young people who vote, two out of those three will vote progressive,” Sanders told the crowd.

So many stupid college students,so little time!!!

I weep for the future of this country.

This strategy should work well with college students. They are too young and naive to know the history of Socialists, and their college courses are mostly taught by people who candy-coat Socialism as the new utopia.

Still, I expect the DNC to stop Bernie from becoming their nominee, just like they did in 2016. He hasn’t been a card-carrying or dues-paying Democrat like the others.

Also, if Bernie were their nominee, Trump’s people would publicize all of his associations with Socialists and Communists, and his praise of Russia, China, Cuba, and Venezuela. Nominating Bernie would ensure Trump’s victory in 2020.

A rainbow is God frowning. There, I said it, and I own it. 😉
