Clinton faces losing Iowa to Sanders thanks to young women

Of all the groups that comprise Iowa’s electorate, young female Democrats should be natural supporters of Hillary Clinton.

But when Iowa becomes the first US state to choose a Democratic nominee on Monday, the polls suggest that most young women will back the 74-year-old socialist, Bernie Sanders.

One national survey suggests that Mr Sanders enjoys a 19 point lead over Mrs Clinton among women aged 18 to 34. In Iowa his favourability rating with women is 81 per cent, well ahead of Mrs Clinton’s 69 per cent.

    So if hilary clinton has 69%, if someone is brave enough to poke her bum with a finger does support go to 70%?

  • Xavier

    Hillary’s just going through the motions. Primary voters don’t matter; she already has the delegates locked in and the media will ensure she’s elected. It’s probably a good idea to practice saying, “Madame Führer”.

    • Shebel

      She is not going to win . I sure as hell hope that I am right.

      • Xavier

        I hope you’re right. But I truly believe we are about to see the ugliest and most fraudulent election in US history. The liberals are too close to having their entire agenda fulfilled, and they aren’t going to let the voters stand in their way.

        • Hillary’s problems with the FBI and the email scandal are not going away.

          If the FBI recommends indictment, she is toast.

          If the DOJ refuses to indict Hillary, the outcry will be immense.
          Anyway you look at it, Hillary’s run for the presidency is going to hurt the democrats as a whole.

          And between an angry old communist Bernie or a brash “make America great again” Trump, I’m betting on Trump.

            Not to argue, but:
            These are the Clintons. This is what they do.

            “If the DOJ refuses to indict Hillary, the outcry will be immense.”
            Except so far the MSM have kept everything on the downlow for Hill. *She’s* the one that could shoot someone in the middle of 5th Avenue and it would never make the news. Such a horrible, horrible witch.

  • Shebel

    What is with the USA running these senior citizens to be President ? Do really want some 70 year olde , half demented ,disease riddled ,brain addled ,crazy old fool running the most powerful military machine in the World.
    When you get to to certain age -you really are not that afraid of dying any more. . It is here Today .Gone Tomorrow. Just hopefully no pain.
    Maybe they might go on a Power Trip and push the bloody Button.

    I don’t trust old people.

    • Xavier

      I’m constantly amazed at people who believe that human life can be extended indefinitely through artificial means, as if the mind would hold up forever. I’m surrounded by the elderly and although there are exceptions, cognition falls off drastically after 65 or so.

      They get mean as snakes, too.

      • Shebel

        haha Not that I would know ,except by observation—

        but – that is true .
        Look at how quickly the young guys get grey haired with the job— Do you really think that some old coot with one foot in the bloody grave is going to have any control over anything?
        Something , just doesn’t fit in this puzzle. There are a few pieces missing.

        Reagan assumed office at 70 and he seemed to do okay.

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          Destroyed the Evil Empire (and it sure as hell was that) and ushered in 20 years of peace and prosperity. Yeah. He did okay. 😉

  • Sharkibark

    Aren’t these the same people who said John McCain (at 72) was too old to be president and that Sarah Palin would be “just a heartbeat” away from the Presidency?

    • Xavier

      “The GOP is the party of old white men” got Barry elected twice.

        Which lead to a boom in gun sales. Made a killing on publically traded stock by those companies. It was just a slam dunk.

    • BillyHW

      Age only matters for the Republicans running.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        So, what does it mean when little girls can deny an old hag the Democrat nomination by voting for a crazy old communist?

        • DavidinNorthBurnaby

          The whole farce means America is sliding down the shithole. 🙁

  • Shebel

    So—-does it really matter which one of these assholes win ?
    I don’t think anything is going to change.
    It is like we all hell bent on destroying our own Countries from within.
    Is the World and all its’ Counties just a big Chess game ?
    If so—then why is Islam being set up to win ?

  • Hard Little Machine

    Promising limitless free shit to people is an attractive message.

    • Shebel

      Like Obama did with the Black people that he pretends to identify with— as he brings in millions of people that will compete directly against them. .

      When a Liberal says that they are going to HELP you— It pretty much means that you are Fucked and you may as well just crawl under the bus . It is quicker that way.

    • BillyHW

      It’s especially attractive to women who have a hormonal need to be taken care of. They vote for the Daddy State every time.

  • canminuteman

    This scares me. I would have thought that women would vote for Clinton because she is a women the same way as blacks voted for Obama because he is half black. But it turns out that they favour the hard core communist even over a women.

    • ntt1

      communism has a strong appeal to the female of the species.it is very close to their personal outlook on life.

      • Xavier

        Paging Billy. Billy to the keyboard, please. A “female voter” comment is needed stat. Paging Billy.

        • ntt1

          Empirically speaking, I am in constant contact with the forces of political correctitude. With out exception, the worst practitioners are female. all the hr directors, all the safety wonks despite zero floor/ fabrication experience. all the most radical unionists , and so on.they seem to be a very tight fit for cultural marxism.

          • Xavier

            I don’t wish to start a row or over generalize, but it does seem that a certain percentage of women appear to vote based on emotion rather than logic.

          • Shebel

            If a female is a tight fit then far be it for me to criticize her politics.

          • ntt1

            And that my friend ..is the key to most males downfall.
            World rule through kegels,

    • luna

      I’m told women usually vote for the better looking candidate (may explain Justin). My guess is neither Sanders nor Clinton would stand a chance against Rubio for the female voter.

  • david

    Seems to be a lot of hate on here for anyone over say 40. As a Canadian born 65 year old conservative white male I say go fuck yerself.

    • Xavier

      I don’t hate old people – I’m a senior citizen myself. But I don’t necessarily think doddering old fools like McCain and Sanders need to be in charge of the country. With age comes incontinence, not wisdom.

      • Norman_In_New_York

        The appeal of Bernie over Hillary is that he has kept his nose clean.

    • Shebel

      It is OK old fellow . No need to get cantankerous .

  • Dana Garcia

    I have this nagging suspicion that psychologically, she is not committed. Maybe she feels unsure of her health. Whatever the reason, the unforced errors are numerous for an experienced political hand.

  • glasnost

    I’m confused by their favourability numbers, 81+69 = 150%. Does that include dead people?

    • Xavier

      It’s liberal math; of course it includes dead people.

    • Exile1981

      They asked people if they see a canidate in a favorable light. So each canidate was a seperate question as opposed to hillary vs sanders question.

      So 69% said yes they see hillary positive and 81% see bernie positively. They only asked registered democrats. What this tells me is 19% of the voters are die hard hillary supporters and 31% are bernie’s fellow travellors.

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Lottsa dead Dem voters every cycle.

  • simus1

    Feminists of of the younger know nothing cohort go for the old white commie guy?
    But she’s a corrupt lesbian sociopath traitor! How can any DemocRat top that?
    Oops, that’s right. Bernie no be DemocRat.

    This younger generation (shake head).

    Why don’t they just have a wheel chair race, the winner gets the votes for Iowa.
