Bernie Sanders to step up campaign schedule for Hillary Clinton

John Morales was interning for Bernie Sanders' campaign when the longshot Democratic candidate's hopes started to fade in the spring. Even with the short notice, UMD is ready for Sanders' appearance.

A recent AP-GfK poll found Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson pulling 14 per cent of voters under 30, Green Party nominee Jill Stein with three per cent and "other" with six per cent.

Clinton had the backing of 48 per cent of young voters, compared with the 60 per cent Obama notched in 2012.

In the AP-GfK poll, 69 percent of them said they could still change their minds about whom to support, while more than 85 percent of both Trump and Clinton supporters said their minds were made up.

It's not that she's anxious young independents in New Hampshire will vote for Trump. Almost one-third refused to pick or said they would just not vote if it came down to that. But they sounded much more like teammates working together than former antagonists forced to combine forces against a common enemy.

I think it'll energize the students a little bit. "I think voters are savvy enough to know that they can waste a vote on a third party in a safe state but not in a swing state".

USA band The Slants sues so it can trademark 'offensive' name
In the Redskins' case, six trademark registrations previously granted were stripped away because they disparage Native Americans. A lower court ruled in their favor holding that the disparagement clause discriminates on the basis of viewpoint and content.

"Let's be clear, elections are not just about who votes, but who does not vote", first lady Michelle Obama said at George Mason University in Virginia earlier this month. Some of those voters are #NeverTrump Republicans, but some are young voters like DeButts, the UNH senior, disappointed Bernie supporters. Following this week's debate, Clinton was leading 42-to-38%. It may have helped them realize what "realistic" options they truly have, said Amy Becker, professor of communication at Loyola University of Maryland. "But I think it is what the country will eventually respond to, because if you say, as I do, I'm going to fight to make real change, to build on progress, to go further, but I will not promise what I can not, and know I can not, deliver".

It is important to recognize what's going on in this election.

The Clinton campaign declined Saturday to respond directly to the story but pointed to tweets by Sanders' spokesman Mike Casca, who called at least one of the stories about the tape "misleading" and "completely inaccurate". But now she says she'll vote for Clinton because she realizes that "a third party candidate can't really do anything but pull votes away" from the major parties.

But Dennis Goldford, a longtime observer of Iowa politics who teaches at Drake University in Des Moines, said more forces might be at work that favor Trump than just demographics.

Bethany Balstad, 19, a sophomore at UNH, confirmed Clinton's biggest fear.

I've been a mite hard on Bernie Sanders, and a couple of weeks ago I was eager to put it behind me.
