HOW A JOURNALIST CAN TURN A FACT INTO A MISLEADING STORY

"Donald Trump has actually won more raw votes from 18-29 year olds during the primaries so far than Clinton, according to exit poll estimates from CIRCLE."

The BV has noted the old guard are dying out and the millennials are moving in.  Now if you read the entire article it does get to the truth of the matter, Donald Trump is beating Hillary with millennials, but Bernie Sanders is beating Hillary also, and millennials as a group vote Democrat.

You have to be careful in reading these type articles.  I am hard pressed to believe the Bernie Sanders' millennials are going to stay home in swing states.  They will vote Democrat.  This presents a problem for Trump who is just way too disconnected from the majority of millennials.

In two years as the millennials realize their power I see Texas electing its first statewide Democrats in over twenty years.  It is time for viable candidates to get ready.  Hopefully the Democratic Party will see the advantage in running a moderate Democrat instead of a left wing Democrat for governor.
