Bernie's youth revolution — and Clinton's problem

Supporters and protesters gather outside as US Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders participate in the MSNBC Democratic Candidates Debate at the University of New Hampshire in Durham on February 4, 2016First time Democratic voters are flocking en masse to Bernie Sanders, a 74-year-old senator with seven grandchildren, giving Hillary Clinton a youth deficit problem as the White House race tightens. Polls show that the Vermont senator, born during World War II and satirized by comedian Larry David as having only one pair of underpants, annihilates Clinton among Democrats under 30. According to Friday’s University of Massachusetts/Lowell poll, he has 89 percent support among young voters in New Hampshire, which next week holds the first state primary of the 2016 race.
