All you hear from the liberal mainstream media is how great Hillary Clinton is and how she has cornered the vote among women, blacks and young people. Like so many other political reports by the same mainstream media, they often do not reflect the truth.
Several days ago, I shared that a high school in Willmar, Minnesota took a mock vote during the lunch hour as part of a nationwide initiative. One would think that many young people, including teenagers, would pay more attention to the media reports than to the real issues facing our nation.
If that were so, you would expect the young people to favor Hillary Clinton over Donald Trump, but that was not the case at many high schools. In last Tuesday’s vote at Willmar High School, around 40% of Willmar’s 1,200 students took time during their lunch hour to cast their ballots. A total of 514 ballots were cast, of which 207 were for Trump and 179 for Clinton. Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson received 41 votes and Legal Marijuana Now Party candidate Dan Vacek received 17 votes. A number of ballots had write-in names and other candidates received less than 10 votes.
One report stated that Hillary only lost by fewer than 30 votes, but the bottom line is that Trump took 40.3% of the vote compared to Clinton’s 34.8%. That’s all it takes for someone to win the presidency and the White House in the national election.
My granddaughter is a freshman in high school and she just shared with me that her school also held a mock election. She said the numbers were 209 votes for Hillary Clinton and 496 votes for Donald Trump. Percentage wise, that gives Trump a 70.4% to 29.6% victory over Hillary Clinton. Trump received more than double the number of votes than Hillary Clinton received.
I asked her if the heavy Trump vote was because so many parents in this area are Republicans and she told me no, it was because of the issues. She said that they kids are concerned about their futures and believed that Trump would be better for America and their futures than Hillary. She mentioned Trump securing the border, building up the military and creating more jobs. Then she told me that most of the kids believe that Hillary would be worse than Obama and that America would be terrible with her as president.
I asked her to tell me what she meant about securing the border and she said it was important to stop all the illegal aliens from entering our country to commit crimes, destroy our neighborhoods and steal jobs from Americans. When I asked about the military, she said that Obama has destroyed our military and left America weak.
I asked her about Hillary Clinton and she said that everyone believes she is a liar and cannot be trusted to run America. Once again, a group for young people vote for Trump and defy the liberal media.
Evidently, the liberal media is selling our young people short as they appear to be paying more attention to the issues facing our nation than they are the liberal lies of the media. I’ve been fearful that so many of our young people have been brainwashed by the socialist public schools and liberal media, but I have to admit that I may have been wrong in my assessment of them. There is still hope in our young people and it’s true, their best hope for a future right now is Donald Trump.
