Williams reminds readers how familiar this election is to 2008, when Hillary seemed all but certain to win, but who was ultimately beaten by Obama — most notably in the Iowa Caucus when he led with youth voters 5-to-1.
It would seem that Hillary learned her lesson. She hired Obama’s former youth coordinator, Rachel Schneider, who was even hired on by Ready for Hillary before an official declaration to run.
And, Hillary herself also embarked on college campus speeches during that time.
She’s also turned to hiring her social media director from BuzzFeed, a site Obama certainly made use of during the 2008 and 2012 elections.
And yet her efforts have not paid off with millennials, especially with young millennials and with women.
In all fairness, Williams points out that “it is not just Clinton who is having difficulties with young voters; all of the 2016 candidates are facing challenges with millennials, the majority of whom don’t see the current field as fully in tune with their issues.”
