Poll: #LoserDonald Really NOT Winning With Millennials
5 August 2016
In a poll featuring four presidential candidates, Donald Trump did not fair well among youth voters. Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola, Ben Mankiewicz, and Michael Shure, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“A couple of weeks back, I asked whether it was possible that Donald Trump might lose millennial voters to a third-party candidate, Libertarian nominee Gary Johnson.
Well, a new poll shows him losing young voters not just to Johnson, but also to Green Party nominee Jill Stein.
The McClatchy poll shows Trump pulling just 1 in 10 votes — 9 percent — among Americans under 30 years old. Hillary Clinton is at 41 percent, while Johnson is at 23 percent and Stein is at 16 percent. Trump is basically tied with “undecided,” which is at 8 percent.”

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Saturday 6th August 2016
Some of them may even vote for Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on November 8, as will millions of traditional Republican electors who dread the prospect of waking up next morning to the ravings of President Trump.
But it is not primarily Donald Trump and the racist, sexist, homophobic and other reactionary and dangerous views that he holds.
It is that the US, as the world’s biggest and most advanced capitalist society, has produced such inequality, resentment, ignorance and bigotry that the likes of Trump could be a serious candidate for public office at any level, let alone that of president and military commander in chief.
For many millions of US citizens who have seen their income stagnate and fall over the past two decades, as staple industries crumble and jobs disappear, Trump appears to offer hope as he turns their fears into hate.
His scapegoats are liberals, Democrats, feminists, Muslims, Mexican immigrants, the Chinese and — above all — the “Establishment.”
As well as building all kinds of walls to keep out foreigners and their products, he promises tax cuts for everybody including the rich and big business.
As befits a billionaire whose corporate empire was founded on his father’s wealth, Trump also pledges to abolish inheritance tax.
Some of the revenue lost by the US Treasury will be made up by closing loopholes and ending tax concessions on business expenses and overseas investment income. Cuts in government social and welfare spending would ensure that the budget is balanced.
Faced with such a right-wing, anti-working-class and socially divisive agenda, Clinton cannot help but come over as a progressive, enlightened human being who cares about the poor and oppressed.
Under pressure from the left of centre campaign run by her chief rival for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination, Bernie Sanders, she proposes higher wages and more public investment in health, education and welfare.
But Clinton should be able to count on the support of an overwhelming majority of US women.
How else could they vote when Trump has consistently come out with such odious sexist comments?
While US citizens face a clear choice between lunacy and sanity in November, the rest of the world has a good deal to fear whoever wins.
President Trump will refuse any responsibility to combat global warming and climate change. His bunker mentality does not preclude an apparent readiness to use nuclear weapons to keep other countries in their place.
Either president will strengthen the case for questioning Britain’s continued membership of Nato, the expansionist nuclear weapons alliance led by the US.
The Clinton campaign is seeking to direct all anti-Trump sentiment in a right-wing, pro-war direction: here.
NEW EMAILS RAISE OLD QUESTIONS “A new batch of State Department emails released Tuesday showed the close and sometimes overlapping interests between the Clinton Foundation and the State Department when Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. The documents raised new questions about whether the charitable foundation worked to reward its donors with access and influence at the State Department, a charge that Mrs. Clinton has faced in the past and has always denied.” [NYT]
On Tuesday, the conservative legal group Judicial Watch released 296 pages of State Department records spanning Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state from 2009 to 2013. These records include 44 email exchanges that were deliberately withheld from the 55,000 pages of emails that Clinton gave the State Department for their investigation into her use of a private email server: here.
