The 2016 presidential election still doesn’t have a Democratic nominee even though most people believe it is going to be Hillary Clinton. Whoever does face off against Donald Trump is going to have a rather difficult run, as he has more supporters than people may realize. Clinton still has to win her party, though, and she’s going to have to get past Bernie Sanders who is gaining momentum and the support of generations to come.
Looking at their age, they may not have the ability to vote yet, but their voices are definitely being heard around the country. Kids are speaking out, and letting the grown-ups know that they really don’t care for Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Kids don’t believe either of the two candidates have what it takes to be a great leader for the United States of America.
It’s becoming more and more common that young voters are going to “Feel the Bern” when it comes time to cast their voice in the polls. The Boston Globe reported back in January that the younger crop of Democrats believe him to be the “leader of a youth movement” that gives them a future to believe in.
Little did they realize that the future they’re speaking of goes even beyond the generation of late teens and young 20-somethings.
Some think that many young people take to Bernie Sanders due to the fact that he displays all the qualities and specifications of a kindly, old grandfather. He may be the kind of grandfather that any person would love to have as their own, but his favoring of free college tuition for everyone is something else that young voters are extremely happy about.
Even the voters of tomorrow believe that’s one of the best promises that Sanders has brought forth.

Kids aren’t exactly showing the same appreciation or good feelings for Donald Trump. As a matter of fact, they’re going as far out of the realm of acting like children as possible to show that they are against Trump and all that he stands for.
Political Insider may bring about some news that is out there at times, but a video of Mexican children slamming Trump and even destroying a Trump piñata may not be too far off from the truth. The video was created by a group that is dedicated to fighting “anti-Latino and anti-immigrant racism in the 2016 election.”
Both of those things are not really in the mindset of Bernie Sanders, and that is a huge reason that his support in California is growing ahead of the Democratic primary on June 7.
Kids are also speaking out against Hillary Clinton, and that’s exactly what young CJ Pearson did in a video from last year. When Clinton revealed she was throwing her hat in the ring for the presidential election, Pearson’s video hit the net and brought out his true feelings for the woman he called the “Narcissist in Chief.”
“I cannot wait for the day America chooses a president based on their values, and not based on their genitalia…”
Pearson doesn’t believe that she should be elected simply due to the fact that she’s the first woman who has a legitimate chance of becoming president. If she’s not qualified, he doesn’t think she deserves to get the nomination in the Democratic party or even have a chance.
Bernie Sanders has done a lot for the children of this country, and he believes that all deserve affordable healthcare, a quality education, affordable childcare, and accessible food that is nutritious. As he’s been on the campaign trail, he’s made those points even more obvious and people are believing in him all that much more.
Whether they are 5, 10, 15, or 18 — the kids are for Bernie.

Bernie Sanders really has a long way to go if he’s going to become the next President of the United States, but he’s not stopping the fight. He’s gaining momentum in California and starting to build up his group of supporters in a number of other states. If parents want what’s best for their children, they’re may start listening to their kids and rethink those votes for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.
