yes, that's what I suggested in the OP. But my question is WHY?

It's always been true that young people are concerned with the immediate issues in their own lives, and not interested in boring stuff like politics, pension funds,etc.
But if you are passionate about something, you usually act on your passions...whether it's politics, or drinking beer.
And Bernie supporters are passionate.....I'm wondering how many of them were passionate only on social media exhorting everyone to vote for him, and then hypocritical in their own personal life but not voting themselves.
