Philadelphia – Hillary Clinton joined a few hundred students this afternoon at Temple University in hopes of getting more millennials on her side. Recent polls show that Clinton is losing the support of millennials – not to Trump, but to third-party candidates. That could be extremely detrimental to her campaign as young Democrats may vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson, which would give Trump a less bumpy road to the White House.

  • A central point of her 45-minute address was about making higher education more affordable.
  • Clinton stated that she was working with Sanders to “make public college free for working families and debt-free for everyone.”

Even if you are totally opposed to Donald Trump, you may have some questions about me. I get that. When it comes to public service, the service part has always been easier for me than the public part. I will never be the showman my opponent is, and you know what, that’s OK with me. – Hillary Clinton

  • The college plan Clinton & Sanders are pitching includes eliminating tuition at in-state public colleges for families with annual incomes of up to $85,000.
  • Clinton guarantees 12 weeks of paid leave for new parents.

Students I had the pleasure of speaking with all had something in common – their expectations for the future president. These concerns include graduating without fear that debt will slow down their chances of getting jobs or homes and reducing the cost of tuition to make it easier to pay back without it ruining their credit. Walter Smith, Rebecca Jackson and Carla Robinson all gave Young Constituents a comment prior to the rally.
