Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, February 19, 2020

New findings from The Economist show that women under 45 make up a larger share of Bernie Sanders' base than do men in their same age group, contradicting a popular narrative that says the 2020 Democratic candidate's supporters are overwhelmingly white and male, to the virtual exclusion of other groups. This narrative often hinges on the "Bernie Bro," a term Atlantic writer Robinson Meyer coined during the 2016 election to describe a type of mansplaining internet harasser that some came to see as representative of all Sanders voters. Bernie Bros were a "mob" flooding the Twitter mentions of Hillary Clinton supporters; they were "sexist," even "enthusiastically" so; and they were loud and aggressive when expressing their uncompromising support for their candidate.

Gloria Steinem said young women only support Sanders so they can meet guys. Yeah, that Gloria Steinem.

Par for the course. American men lean conservative, American women lean liberal.

Only way I see that changing is if abortion is not on the table, which has not been the case during my lifetime.

With their names and phone #s written on them with lipstick. That's what the country needs next. The Rock Star president!

Don't laugh, it's coming.
