    They say millennials are the dominate group now. Gen X are substantial as well. Us lowly Baby boomers are not the most important group. I am curious how the younger citizens/voters are leaning.

    I know initially they didn't think good thoughts about Hillary but Trump has been a shit storm. I am curious where the trends are leaning.

    I haven't met one Trump supporter in my age group, but I also happen to live in one of the most liberal cities in America.

    There are probably plenty of angry people in my age group who are voting for Trump, but I think that's more of a geographic phenomena than anything else.

    Poorly educated white millennials living in the rust belt will likely vote for Trump. They are upset that their dominance in American politics is coming to an end and they look at Trump as someone who can change it. Their (and my) parents were born in an age when black citizens had to drink at separate water fountains, piss in separate toilets, and eat at separate restaurants. Thankfully my parents taught me love, respect, and that everyone is equal, but many other parents did not.

    Highly educated white, black, Hispanic, and Asian millennials are on the Hillary bandwagon. We are excited about voting for our nations first female President. Sure, there are plenty of millennials who claim they are going to cast a protest vote because they don't like either candidate, but I have a strong feeling that the vast majority of us will vote for Clinton. I'll be casting my vote for Secretary Clinton early next week as soon as I get my ballot.

    Wanted, members interested in politics. This is a political site and members seem mostly interested in a good night's sleep. Oh well

    Politics. Members don't need to like each other.

    Hey, rumor is the final presidential debate is a few hours away. Any thoughts or ideas ? Anyone heard a Trump solution to a problem ? Any problem ? Details ? Any detail at all ?

    Trust me. Scary stuff. The morons are firmly in line though.

    If Secretary Clinton is able to stay on message and not allow Trump to goad her into a mudslinging fight then she'll be just fine. She doesn't need to stoop down to his level and it will only hurt her if she does. Let Donald Trump implode on his own.

    I believe she knows that. She seems to have a good team around her. With the R's being complete whacko's, you just can't imagine what might occur. DT inviting Mr. Obama's half brother, I expect absolutely anything to be possible. The crazy man is getting desperate. Turns out under educated white males don't equal 54% or more of registered voters. As I said previously, I will not assume a damned thing. Hopefully tonight's questions have words with more than 5 letters. World leaders or questions about problems in countries without oil might be refreshing as well. Asking for a detailed reply on fixing something would be good. When talking about jobs, an explanation about why he doesn't manufacture here would be appropriate. I am expecting a grilling on e mails and Benghazi to be the soup du jour while the Orange fool handles soft balls. It is Fox after all.

    Hopefully a few comments will be made during or just after it ends. I would love to hear some members opinions.

    I just read on Facebook that there's a photo with the potus half brother in clothing representing himself (symbols) as a member of Hamas. Nothing like the R candidate having his special guest being a terrorist. No fact checking going on on their team.

    It was prescented as another stupid mistake by Trump but perhaps it could be a spin topic to work against the good team. Stay tuned for the spin doctors.
