Age and class

Income and age are the real dividers in the race between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders. In New Hampshire:

The biggest dividing line in the Democratic race here was income. Sanders crushed Hillary Clinton by 30 percentage points among voters with a family income of less than $100,000, but won by just 7 percentage points among those making more than $100,000, according to the exit poll. That divide along income lines is an advantage for Sanders: More Democrats earn below the $100,000 threshold than above it. In 2008, just 17 percent of Democratic primary voters nationally were whites from families earning more than $100,000, compared to 43 percent who were whites from families earning less than $100,000.

While in Iowa:

Among voters between the ages of 17 and 29, Bernie Sanders won 84 percent of the vote to Hillary Clinton's 14 percent

 This is fascinating news.

of course, in NH Bernie won every group

And, it makes sense. Occupy Wall Street is dead, but Occupy Wall Street is going to change the nation. The 99% have had enough. They were waiting for Howard Beale. He has arrived.
