Posted on 10/11/2018 7:59:06 PM PDT by familyop
The New York Times and Siena College has done live polling throughout the country in swing congressional districts. Several districts that have a large population of white-working class voters have seen an interesting trend: millennials are breaking towards the Republican candidate...West Virginias Third Congressional District...Ohios First District...Virginias Second District...Maines Second District...Virginias Seventh District...Illinois 12th district...Minnesotas Eighth District...

How can this be? Didn’t I just read that Millennials favor the Democrats by a huge margin? Those white working class ones are spoiling everything.
I’m surrounded by white, working class millenials, and none of them vote Dem. At least not that I’m aware of.
My millennial kids keep me abreast of the local trends, and they tell me that among their peers, it’s considered ‘dumbass’ to vote Dem.
Now, I’m in North Texas, so trends might be different in your neck of the woods.
College kids are not the majority of this group. Blue collar young adults see the world much differently than those who are in school. Not a surprise.
Too true. My kids and their friends are all blue collar, and none of them support the 'rats.
Not much different than when I was their age.
all Millennials should wake up - especially as the liberals’ gloBULL “warming” mob plan to rob their parents’ and grandparents’ retirement funds to finance their $100 trillion-dollar-plus scam, which would mean no inheritance money for the millennials
it’s not like they’ve been hiding it!
2015: Guardian: Nearly half of top pension funds gambling on climate change
by Karl Mathiesen
UN climate chief Christiana Figueres said the index was an invaluable tool for encouraging pension fund to finance the shift toward a low carbon economy.
Pensions funds and the multi-trillion dollar assets they manage have a pivotal role to play in this transformation.”...
AODP and other experts believe that funds that do nothing to assess their climate risk may be breaching their responsibilities to their members. AODP and environmental law campaigners Client Earth launched a project last week that will assess whether UK pension funds are breaking the law...
Dec 2017: World Economic Forum: Why your pension fund may be causing climate change
by Sébastien Godinot, Economist, WWF European Policy Office
What this means is that your pension money could be invested in, say, a coal plant - a highly polluting energy source and a slowing industry - and you would never know it.
At WWF, we believe that asset owners have a crucial contribution to make towards the Paris Agreements climate targets - keeping global temperature rise to well under 2°C and aiming for 1.5°C.
After all, while climate change is primarily a terrible threat to our existence, it is also a major financial risk; $7.2 trillion could be lost in value from financial portfolios globally by 2100 if no further action is undertaken on climate change.
At WWF, we want asset owners to invest in renewable energy and the green economy rather than in sectors which cause climate change, like fossil fuels...
Bringing asset owners in line with the Paris Agreement starts with more transparency. The EU and Member States should require investors to assess and publish their climate alignment, as recommended by the G20 Financial Stability Boards Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD)...
10 Sept: Reuters: Public pension funds slow to move on climate change risk: study
The AODP, part of investor pressure group ShareAction, tracked funds with combined assets of more than $11 trillion and found that 63 percent of them were at risk of breaching their duty to savers...
let the Millennials know the plan.
Millenials are extremely polarized. While everyone knows the snowflake Antifa types, I don’t think people are aware that there’s an extremely far-right contingent that exists as well. And by far right, I mean they casually talk about forming death squads to kill leftists or throw them out of helicopters.
The oldest Millennials are now over 30. Of this group, many finally have jobs (remember the economy crashed just as they were graduating college), many have families. The rebooted economy has been good for them.
They actually have things worth guarding and that they don’t want to lose them—the time for the childish nonsense of the far left is over, because leftist ideals put those things at risk. They also now see that *any* leftist, once elected, will happily hand the keys over to the radical leftists.
Hopefully part of a new national trend
Kids still in college are probably all still solidly democrat but my son and daughter tell me they each know several people with huge college debt even bankruptcy won't get them out of who are now solidly anti-Democrat. Republicans are on the ticket opposite democrats so they're Republican. They also realize that voting for a third party is the same as voting for the democrats in most cases.
The democrats have spent decades letting their alligator mouths make promises their rats ass can't keep (and that democrats never had any intention of keeping) and the consequences are turning the voting public around a little at a time in the form of underemployed people with huge college debt and black folks finally waking up and realizing that the democrats have taken their welfare plantations full of black folks for granted just like they took their slaves picking cotton for granted prior to the Civil War.
You write a mean run-on sentence,dude. Do you have a bias toward punctuation?
Ya’ got a paragraph, but you’re never satisfied, are ya’.
This is very very important.
Good to see Carol Miller up 8 points WV-3, in part thanks to this millennial edge.
The democrats are desperately intent on winning that heavily Trump seat because of what a great talking point it would be. They have a country-fried far left “populist” (socialist) candidate that claims (BS) that he voted for Trump and is disappointed. The guy is a POS and would be a real danger if he won, slick BS artist who knows all the right lies to tell the kinds of voters in his district, far left groups are salivating over the prick. Richard Ojeda or “Iraq War Vet Richard Ojeda”. You never see his name in print without that first part, key part of the persona.
Since many millennials raise dogs/cats instead of children, when they can find work they are taxed heavily; they lose deductions related to children and usually mortgages (why buy homes?). They rightly see the environmental movement as an attack on private car ownership, and also see the race relations worsening (with whites/Asians the public enemies). Finally, they can see the gender wars have left many young women with few potential mates; they’ve won battles but lost the war. Many reasons to “walk away” from the radicalized Dems...

White people should never vote for a demo_rat.
