Democrats are terrified that they are losing the battle against Republicans. The evidence is clear in the way they are attacking Trump and acting hysterical over every single issue. They are desperate for leverage.
Another tactic that they are employing is lowering the voting age. The younger a person is the more liberal they usually are. Generally speaking, young adults and teenagers have less life experience, make less money, and are more “idealistic” than older individuals. Knowing this, democrats, fueled with George Soros money and resources, are attempting to change voting age requirements to 17 and even 16 in some states.
The Washington Time reported:
In California, Democratic legislators introduced this week a landmark bill, ACA 10, that would give the Golden State the nation’s youngest statewide voting age by lowering the threshold from 18 to 17 in the name of reversing the slide in voter turnout.
“Young people are our future,” said Democratic Assembly member Evan Low, the measure’s sponsor. “Lowering the voting age will help give them a voice in the democratic process and instill a lifelong habit of voting.”
The proposal comes as the most ambitious of a host of efforts to chip away at the 18-year-old voting age as Democrats seek to bring into the fold younger voters, who traditionally support more liberal causes and candidates than do their elders.
Mr. Soros is on board: His Open Society Foundations is among the left-wing philanthropies backing FairVote, which has pushed to allow 17-year-olds who will turn 18 before the general election to vote in presidential primaries and caucuses, a policy now on the books in 21 states and the District of Columbia.
Also gaining popularity is preregistration. Twenty states and the District of Columbia allow certain minors, ranging in age from 16 to 17 years and 10 months, to register to vote before turning 18, according to the National Conference of State Legislatures.
