During an interview with Chris Cuomo on CNN, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) was confronted with the fact young people that were supposed to be part of the Bernie Sanders “movement” just simply did not come out to vote for him in impressive numbers on Super Tuesday.
Rather than answer the question directly, Ocasio-Cortez basically just deflected to California not having been decided yet.
It has to be a concern for the Sanders campaign that broke late broke against him. That’s not new.
What is new is 2016 versus 2020 is the idea of the movement and I say all the time that Bernie is the only one whose got a movement behind him.
Now the Biden people are beating me up for it. Whatever, that’s the business. They didn’t show up for you last night.
The young people who you are promising to the party that you can bring in didn’t come in anywhere. How do you explain that with any optimism?
Well I think one thing that we have to see and one huge question is the largest prize of the night, which is California and we are going to be having hundreds of delegates decided which was the largest prize yesterday.
