Video: Clinton woos millennial vote with tweets and youth volunteers
Date created : Latest update :
Barely a month before the US elections, the Hillary Clinton campaign is increasing its focus on getting out the youth vote, particularly in swing states. But are millennials feeling the same burn for Clinton as they did for Bernie Sanders?
The youth as a demographic bloc were solidly behind Barack Obama in the 2008 and 2012 polls. But this time, Democrats have an uphill task of trying to woo the left-wing millennials who supported Sanders.
“Right now the unfavourables for both candidates are very high. So it’s very hard to get people engaged,” admits Stephen Pierce, vice president of the student association at La Salle University in Philadelphia.
