 That Trump is undeniably the nation's 45th president doesn't sit easily with young Americans like Anderson who are the nation's increasingly diverse electorate of the future, according to a new poll. A majority of young adults — 57 percent — see Trump's presidency as illegitimate, including about three-quarters of blacks and large majorities of Latinos and Asians, the GenForward poll found.

That's OK. Lots of Americans still don't think obuma was even an American, much less a legitimate lawful president!


Awful is more like it.


Now it should be clear why public education is being overhauled. This country now has generations of young people who can't read or write and are not prepared for the real world all thanks to public education.


And wouldn't you know it but these same clueless young people wanted Bernie Sanders- a socialist for president???


Point is the young people who failed out of public education are simply showing the world how well their public education failure was really tax paid left wing indoctrination programming creating generations of good little democrat voting puppet robots.


Democrats should be so proud!


Public education = tax paid special kind of stupid! Programmed stupid!

Actually, Bill, our education system was fine until around the 1980s when non-educators began establishing schools as "profit centers" rather than education centers.

I believe it is fair to say the education system you and I grew up in prepared us well for the future. We were provided with a well-rounded education. America ranked much higher when compared to the World than we are today. The fact is we have "lost" generations, educationally, as a result of profiteers rather than educators running the educational process. Our youngster now rank somewhere around 30th in the world when compared in reading and math scores. This is a travesty.

Now the move is toward profitizing our school systems. I cannot say privatizing because there is nothing private about how they are financed in that they merely take tax dollars away from the public school and give it to a management team for a profit center.

Lots of Americans believe in untrue things. This is nothing new.

BJ, the pretned writer, at it again here.


Most young Americans believe that anyone over 40 who supports Trump or the GOP policies are brainwashed or demented.

Let's see,.


Only about 60 million people were crazy enough to vote for Trump. That means that we have hope--because nearly 260 million didn't. We are all losers until either Trump gets us UNIVERSAL HEALTH CARE or Trump, Pence and Ryan get kicked out of DC.

I say the statistics offered point to the obvious fact. Non-White minorities, especially Blacks, don't believe in what America, for Trump's representative majority, believes we should be. Free phones (and every other want) vs. freedom to work, play, succeed and fail. Of course it's more complicated than that, but so too is every person breathing. Liberalism went to far after Social Security and Medicare, including Medicaid and ever expanding welfare. Socialism is a "genie-out-of-the-bottle" never to be put back in. This short respite and conflict against it is welcome.

The Corporate Media Propagandists (CMP) continue selling the fact Trump is not a legitimate President. It is the old theory, developed by the Tavistock Institute, that telling the same thing over and over will eventually become reality to the masses.

While I, for one, did not vote for Trump I find it appalling that the CMP continues to defame him. By doing so they are defaming our nation. Where was the CMP when we were lied to regarding 9/11? Or WMDs? Or a great number of issues that actually destroyed lives? They were busily "selling" the lies they were being paid to sell for the Deep State's agenda.

I don't see any indication that the youth of America meant that they don't believe Trump really won the election, i.e. that he isn't technically "President". I believe what the poll means to convey is that they don't accept him as President in terms of what they understand the President of United States has traditionally stood for. Much the same way that those protesters with the placards which said "Not my President..." didn't believe that he wasn't technically the President, just that they couldn't personally accept him as theirs.
