Now I totally understand why you're single and you don't get dates.

The way to beat Trump is with a progressive like Warren, Sanders or Harris who can articulate a strong clear pro-middle class agenda of universal healthcare, affordable college and living wages. That's how you excite the youth vote to come out in droves. Sanders beats Trump by 6 points in recent polls.
Not in states like Ohio or Wisconsin...the states that Dems have to win back.
Right now, Biden is the only one polling ahead of Trump here in Ohio by more than the margin of error. He leads by about 8 pts. Sanders and Warren poll in statistical ties right now with him here.
Dems cannot beat Trump without reclaiming the industrial midwest.

Also, you can never count on large numbers of the youth voting...even Obama didn't get more than 50% of 18-29 year olds to vote.
