Data gathered on the Sanders campaign showed that 28.8% of Sanders supporters were unemployed, and this is the largest demographic from the 2nd place holder which is just a measly 7.4% working in healthcare.

Who would've thought that those who don't work want the most from those that do...

Not too surprising that the poorest and uneducated who can't find work are backing Sanders. They want to do nothing but force the wealthy, hard working, and intelligent people to pay for all of their expenses.

So the chart in those sources doesn't separate "Retired" from "Unemployed." Pretty safe to assume there are some retirees in there. I can't find an exactly similar chart for Trump, but this one indicates that dollars from folks who are retired make up close to 40% of his donations.

https://www.opensecrets.org...

No doubt including money from other people who are unemployed would push that higher. I don't know that looking at the blanket "Unemployed" demographics of a candidate is all that important. On Sanders' side, I'd bet a large portion of those unemployed contributors are college students.

Donors fall under the list of supporters. It's even more telling how unemployed people have a vested interest in Sanders.

That's because it's a state university, and colleges happen to be leftist breeding grounds, so there's no chance that they WON'T support Sanders.

It doesn't mean much money, as a bachelors education nowadays is equivalent to a high school diploma years ago.

Don't believe what? The statistics are entirely factual and it shows that the largest occupation of his donors happen to be a lack of occupation itself. It's even more useful than looking at his supporters in total, as donors often have more support for the candidate than those that only pay lip service to him.

Even worse. Candidates that often appeal to the young, as Sanders himself has noted, will be the most idealistic candidates rather than practical ones. Also, people over the age of 18 are expected to be employed.

3) Not accounting for retired.

Most people that are of retiree age support Clinton.

Probably because it makes your economically illiterate Sun God Bernie Sanders look like a moron for drawing support from jobless people that will only benefit from government programs without having to pay into them at a significant degree.

No. It makes your misscharacterization of the headline very clear. You have chosen to ignore or missed it.

This is your bare assertion. Your entire thread is a trainwreck, and you just move the goalposts?

So. That still makes your article near worthless

Yea - that's the problem. See, the REAL problem is, this is the sort of junk that passes with Trump supporters, not anyone willing to... you know... LOOK!

It was a mis-usage of the term for me to state the word "supporter" rather than "donor", but the message is still pretty clear. Unemployed people have a vested interest in Bernie's campaign for the sake of assistance.

Bare assertion, in what way? Sanders himself stated that young people tend to be idealistic, and the fact that the most economically unaware candidate running is supported by college students shows quite a lot more than something evident of a "trainwreck".



3) Not accounting for retired.

Most people that are of retiree age support Clinton.

So. That still makes your article near worthless

Ah, so now you're rolling back your verbiage. If you look at age range distributions, those that are most likely to be retired happen to vote for Clinton while those that do not work and are of working age or ability happen to vote for Sanders. It doesn't make it worthless just because you don't like or agree with it.



The entire thing is a mess and should be disregarded if not outright mocked.

Tu quoque. Doesn't matter what I support, it's a matter of what this article states, and that statement is a very clear one indeed. The point of this is to show that Bernie's campaign reeks of vested interest from unemployed people, which are NOT retirees.

2) Not entitled to support whomever they choose




2) Students were a huge part of his suporters.

Even worse. Candidates that often appeal to the young, as Sanders himself has noted, will be the most idealistic candidates rather than practical ones. Also, people over the age of 18 are expected to be employed.

This is your bare assertion. Your entire thread is a trainwreck, and you just move the goalposts?

Bare assertion, in what way? Sanders himself stated that young people tend to be idealistic, and the fact that the most economically unaware candidate running is supported by college students shows quite a lot more than something evident of a "trainwreck"

People over 18 are expected to be employed? By whom? Not me. I expect them to be in school.

Economically unaware candidate? That is sure a bare assertion, and just wrong, but keep at it.

3) Not accounting for retired.

Most people that are of retiree age support Clinton.

So. That still makes your article near worthless

Ah, so now you're rolling back your verbiage. If you look at age range distributions, those that are most likely to be retired happen to vote for Clinton while those that do not work and are of working age or ability happen to vote for Sanders. It doesn't make it worthless just because you don't like or agree with it.

Sorry. Entirely 100% garbage.




The entire thing is a mess and should be disregarded if not outright mocked.

Probably because it makes your economically illiterate Sun God Bernie Sanders look like a moron for drawing support from jobless people that will only benefit from government programs without having to pay into them at a significant degree.

Yea - that's the problem. See, the REAL problem is, this is the sort of junk that passes with Trump supporters, not anyone willing to... you know... LOOK!

Tu quoque. Doesn't matter what I support, it's a matter of what this article states, and that statement is a very clear one indeed. The point of this is to show that Bernie's campaign reeks of vested interest from unemployed people, which are NOT retirees.

Then the numbers should be shown for all candidates for this to have ANY meaning. Its just tripe for Trump supporters to consume and feel good about.

So the chart in those sources doesn't separate "Retired" from "Unemployed." Pretty safe to assume there are some retirees in there. I can't find an exactly similar chart for Trump, but this one indicates that dollars from folks who are retired make up close to 40% of his donations.

No doubt including money from other people who are unemployed would push that
higher. I don't know that looking at the blanket "Unemployed" demographics of a candidate is all that important. On Sanders' side, I'd bet a large portion of those unemployed contributors are college students.

1) I noted - it is donors.

This only changes sample size

No. It makes your misscharacterization of the headline very clear. You have chosen to ignore or missed it.

It was a mis-usage of the term for me to state the word "supporter" rather than "donor", but the message is still pretty clear. Unemployed people have a vested interest in Bernie's campaign for the sake of assistance.

And your implying that all people who are unemployed are
1) Lazy
2) Not entitled to support whomever they choose

Took you this long to write something so preposterous? No, it's not that I'm implying they are lazy or not allowed to support a candidate, but that the platform that Sanders is running on is especially good for unemployed people as it gives them benefits, so there's a vested financial interest in having him win the election.

He has the most detrimental and illiterate economic policies presented out of any other candidate running in the election except for Jill Stein, but we can bar the smaller 3rd party candidates from there. If you're so keen that his economic policies are bright, then we can have a debate on it in a week.

Not exactly. Studies don't have to be done about everyone in that respective candidacy, and it's much more difficult to find a good sample size of Trump donations as Trump is entirely self funded. Also, I've yet to see you actually explain how quoting either of our favored candidates changes either the topic or the assertion that is being presented here. The facts still stand, and as I've said multiple times, there's a vested economic interest in voting for someone that will help your economic state. There's a reason why the rich support people that will cut taxes on the wealthy, and a reason why the unemployed support people that will increase government handouts and subsidies for the unemployed.

They're students. They have been indoctrinated by their marxist professors, when they leave school they will be more moderate, unless they go into academia and try to mooch off society because they are unproductive in any real sense of the word

TBR often argues from ignorance, but he is correct that donors are not neccesarily representative of his support base, v
Because certain demographics may be more inclined to work than others, but even with the stats not neccesarily being representative, anybody with their eyes open can see his supporters are mostly in the 18-24 year old group. So why TBR would argue against you about a large number being unemployed is odd. Clearly students are more likely to not have a job than people out of college. He doesn't have the welfare queens backing him though, that is Hillary. He has the rich white kids who have no practical knowledge of the real world.

Not too surprising that the poorest and uneducated who can't find work are backing Sanders. They want to do nothing but force the wealthy, hard working, and intelligent people to pay for all of their expenses.

I didn't know that's why I support him!
Meh!
