According to the Washington Post, Donald Trump won the last election by 80,000 votes in three states. Stack that up against the 3.6 million kids who will graduate from high school and become eligible voters in 2018.
All those MIllenials out marching today may be able to put a big dent in the NRA’s plans. All they need to do is remember who failed to support gun control legislation and then vote them out of office.
If 3.6 million new voters can’t get it done, then all they need to do is wait a year and let their numbers grow to something over 7 million. Or wait for two years and send 10 million to the polls in a giant Millennial wave.
Wait for it. Hopefully, it’s coming, as they continue to realize their potential for political power. The future is in their hands, but only if they can stay focused as a group long enough to grab it.
