    As a 65 year old white guy who is worried about this election, and disappointed in a lot of older white guys, I have to point out that the big demographic bump for Trump in Florida is not Boomers, but the Depression and War babies. The oldest boomers are now 70 and the youngest are 52. We were children in a time of prosperity, but also the Cold War. The cohort ahead of us were children during the Depression and WWII, so financial security is a big deal for them and they vote.

    It’s boomers. It’s millennials. It’s Bernie Bro’s. It’s anyone BUT Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the DNC, and you-know-who.
