The insult told by every Granola-loving hipster on a Vespa may have actually come to fruition: Donald Trump’s campaign is being run by children — sort of. One of the Trump campaign offices in the State of Colorado is led by a 12-year-old, the son of a high-ranking Colorado Republican.
From NY Daily News:
Weston Imer, a 12-year-old, is in charge of the GOP candidate’s offices in Jefferson County, according to KDVR.
Trump opened a campaign office in the area west of Denver last week, and the preteen is responsible for bringing out voters in the swing state.
The powerful pre-teen, who has been accused of using “threatening” and “thug-like” tactics with Republicans who favor Gary Johnson in this November’s election, has failed to connect with the millennial demographic (potentially because he was born in like 2004), with the aforementioned Johnson currently boasting nearly double Trump’s support amongst youths.
Trump, undoubtedly realizing his poll numbers have cascaded downward faster than a goat standing over a South American sinkhole, has reached out to several key demographics in recent days, including African Americans. While Trump’s support amongst millenials is bad in its own right, it’s nothing compared to his support amongst African Americans, with most demographic polling showing him hovering around one percent nationally. This is making for a modern day Where’s Waldo? search for the lone responder that said “Trump” when asked their presidential preference.
Personally, I think it’s great Trump is petitioning the youth for fresh ideas. Most of the middle school and high school tryhards are already big Trump supporters, so I’m sure they can offer tons of useful advice for the Don..
