Flake: Trump’s ‘Behavior’ Is Driving Away Young People from the GOP

Sunday on CBS’s “Face the Nation,” Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) said President Donald Trump’s “behavior” was making it “very difficult for young people to identify with the Republican Party.”

Flake said, “If you look every four years, every presidential election cycle, we are as a country are 2 percent less white. Voters of color, it’s changing that way. I don’t think that we made enough of an effort as Republicans to appeal across the broader electorate.”

He added, “Then with young people as well given some of the positions and behavior that the president has exhibited I think it makes it very difficult for young people to identify with the Republican party. I think they have been walking away from the party in general. I think they’re at a dead sprint right now and we’ve got to change that.”

      At best you are seriously delusional or blatantly deceptive or virulently partisan.

    Flake is an establishment RINO who saw the Republican polls and decided to not run for re-election. His opinion is just that – his own.

    The continued and idiotic accusations against “the Dems” go against GOP and haters’ pretenses that “the Dems” have no power. Der rumpus seems to be intent on digging his own hole. The question is why so many seem eager to crawl in with him. At some point, GOP supporters need to acknowledge (even just to themselves – this is not a confessional), that GOP leaders, PACs and corporations used der rumpus just to be the front man for their thievery and to divert the country with his idiotic and personality-disordered tweets and behavior. Get real, get busy and get in tune with the needs of the country: not the corporations and others that count on tax savings and cash benefits!
