    Awe come on, hilliary will just buy the freeloader's vote just like the obamanation is. Once she starts whispering food stamps, rent assistance, cell phones and welfare payments in their ears they'll sell this country down the road in a heartbeat for a continuous lazy government paid lifestyle. As I've said, the late great America is gone ant the 3rd rate amerika has taken her place. Why do you think Putin doesn't listen to the babblings of obama?

    What's funny is that millennials don't ever realize they're paying for the baby boomers. THANKS!!!!

    The GOP cannot win over Millenials, because the GOP hates and wants to destroy everything Millenials stand for like Tolerance and Community. The GOP are a party of GREED, and HATRED. That's who the GOP is, that is what they represent, and that is what they support. Even the token minorities within the GOP are HATERS.
    The GOP must remain a minority party within the Government, because when they gain any kind of majority; they are quick to launch programs that take away the rights of Minorities including women, ethnic groups, gays, children, and blue collar workers.
    The GOP's history says it all, and though they rant about freedom, their actions always seek to reduce it, with the exception of guns which the GOP supports in all forms.
    Your days are numbered GOP. In the time it took for me to write this, 20 more of your diehard supporters have gone to their Judgment at the great court room in the Sky.

    Up until a month ago, the wiki page on Hillary included the fact that her first democratic boss fired her for being a liar, fraud, and generally useless; he also refused to give her a letter of recommendation, which was a first in 17 years for him. When this was mentioned recently on a cnn site, a silent do-gooder just flat out lied, and attributed the fact to Rush Limbaugh. Hillary Clinton and her merry band have been cleaning up the the internet just for ignorant millenials who have no idea how truly corrupt both the Clintons are. I'd vote for a toad first.

    Crossfire has too many conservatives namely Newt!!! Any man fired by his own ppl should go home!!! S.E. knows nothing just follows the money, I think the show sucks not like when Evans and Novak had it when both sides could watch, the conservatives make me nauseous after they killed America then to comment on others??? Damn hypocrites!!!

    She's missing something very important.

    Millennials generally don't like the GOP line. They tend toward being in favor of gay marriage and gay rights. They are not anti-immigration. They aren't big military hawks. They tend toward being pro-life. And they are very non-religious as a group.

    The reason they can go for a guy like Rand Paul is that he falls on the right side of a few of those issues. Only a few. Some of the others he basically "punts" on by saying it's a state issue (gay rights), and he's on the wrong side of a few (abortion). But most GOP candidates are on the wrong side of pretty much ALL of those issues so they wouldn't even be considered.

    So while Hillary may have some issues in the Primaries with millennials, in the general election she likely wouldn't... just like Obama struggled with union voters in the primaries but still got the majority of them come the general election.

    And let's be honest... who's the potential millennial-grabbing opposition for Hillary in the primaries? Biden? He'd push her on union voters and the elderly democrats, but not with the millennials. Warner? Only 7 years younger then Hillary and no more of a draw for Millennials. Elizabeth Warren might but she's not likely to run.

    The democrats that could pull millennials from Hillary are all generally Clinton disciples.
    Cuomo? Clinton cabinet member.
    Deval Patrick? Clinton assistant attorney general.
    Gillibrand? Hillary protégé.

    The only possibility that could cause her a problem might be Martin O'Malley. But to be honest, he feels like a guy who'll run for President, drop out fairly early and endorse Hillary in the hopes of becoming a VP or cabinet prospect. He could gather steam like Obama or Clinton did, but I'm not sure I see it there for him yet.

    He's really the best shot of someone stealing Millennials from Hillary thoughl
