Can Democrats survive college educated activists?

There is more to the clip than the title of the post, but it does appear that Democrats are finding it harder and harder to communicate to the average voter (addressed in the video: “Latinx”, “men get pregnant too”, “people with a uterus”, etc.)

So, I wonder…if I were hiring staff for my campaign, I’d have my best experienced staff go over how to communicate with the typical voter and explain the difference between this situation and what they experienced as a student.

But there is something else going on, I think.

Think about the younger college educated people. Many can emotionally manipulate their parents and colleges…yelling and throwing tantrums gets them listened to.

So, why wouldn’t the rest of society work like that?

There was a time when you were told “listen more, talk less.” “You are new here; learn first…THEN talk.”

Now…every parent thinks their kid is a genius and, too often, their egos are inflated at college.

The only reason I have hope is that this Supreme Court IS a bit behind the times. Their latest ruling IS unpopular and…there are some hopeful signs:

Now, this could be an outlier poll. BUT…if there is some truth to this..maybe all is not lost.
