This primary is showing us exactly where Democratic voters stand ideologically. I'm disappointed but not surprised. It's Clinton vs Sanders all over again and the general is gonna be Clinton and Trump all over again.
What's not growing is the youth vote, apparently. Sanders is on TV today expressing disappointment that even LESS youths turned out than in 2016.
I don't know what to say. It's hard for me to wrap my brain around the notion that the youth electorate somehow needs four more years of being stomped into oblivion by Trump to learn the reason why turnout is essential.
