If you have more to flesh out, I'd love to hear it. As much as I hope you're wrong, I have a feeling you're right, but I don't know enough about elections/wtf Americans want to put my finger on why. Do you really think it's impossible for Sanders to convince over-30s Dems to vote for him? Would that be bc of lack of $ or just his message not being sell-able to them? Thanks so much!

OP, please don't listen to TexasComments. He doesn't know what he's talking about. I've talked to him before about Bernie.

Over 30 Americans were born in the eighties, they still remember the cold war and socialism and communism; they may have had an older brother die in Vietnam fighting communists over there and they are generally more politically conservative as they age to say nothing of that generation's introduction to communism. Dems over forty and outside the liberal tumors of Vermont, Portland, Seattle, and Berkeley will never consider Sanders either for fear of wasting their vote or for fear of his socialism more than likely - older people have more money and they earned it.

The Republican version of Sanders is Trump and they agree on a lot of points including getting money out of politics, but your hate for Trump is my hate of Sanders. I would love for him to get the nomination because that would drive Republican voter turnout to an all time high, maybe even 90%, and it would be reactionary voting for Trump, Cruz, or Perry. Conservative Democrats would jump ship too.
