Hillary Clinton suggested at a private fundraiser in February that young people supported Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., because they are political neophytes who still live with their parents, according to new audio released this week.
“Some are new to politics completely. They’re children of the Great Recession. And they are living in their parents’ basement. They feel they got their education and the jobs that are available to them are not at all what they envisioned for themselves. And they don’t see much of a future,” the now-Democratic nominee said.
Clinton’s remarks came in response to a question about why younger voters tend to be so cynical about government.
She continued, saying, “I met with a group of young black millennials today and you know one of the young women said, ‘You know, none of us feel that we have the job that we should have gotten out of college. And we don’t believe the job market is going to give us much of a chance.'”
