Hillary Clinton Adviser Is Worried Millennials Are Going to Turn Republican Due to Tax Cuts

There's a belief that people really vote according to their wallets, and that's why one of Hillary Clinton's former advisers, in particular, is scared that a wave of millennials will leave the Democratic Party and become Republicans.

Philippe Reines is a former senior adviser to Clinton, and he's worried that younger voters will change parties just because they get money back on their tax returns.

“I hope Millennials don't fall into a lull, accepting that this is what it is,” he said. “God knows how many of them will see their taxes go down and base it just on that.”

He talked about how hard it was for Clinton's campaign to tap into what exactly makes millennials tick, like Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) have.

“I don't know how millennials think. It's unclear what will get them going,” Reines said.

Perhaps keeping more of their own money will get them going.
