But to answer your question," Sanders added, he had been thinking "more about foreign policy issues than I previously did."

Democrats Seek Young Voters, and the Memes That Move Them

The Bernie Sanders campaign in 2016 and a focus on young voters in the 2018 midterm elections have put increasing emphasis on them as an important demographic, particularly for Democrats. Even with the youthful support for Mr. Sanders in 2016, a study by the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement found that Mr. Sanders “did not inspire a surge in turnout from young Democrats.” Less than 20 percent of young voters turned out in primaries in Nevada, Iowa and New Hampshire, according to exit polling by Edison Research. “Young voters are listed as low-propensity voters,” said Louis Elrod, president of the Young Democrats of America, the youth arm of the Democratic Party. “You hear this bias all the time that young people are apathetic. We’re not apathetic.” In the last four years, young people have called for big structural economic and social changes by forming organizations such as March for Our Lives, United We Dream and the Sunrise Movement. “Our lives are on the line,” she added. Climate change, health care, immigration reform and creating a more functional economy are central concerns for two generations, millennials and Generation Z, who often align ideologically when it comes to more progressive issues but come from different eras. “Four years ago, millennials were pretty much the youngest voting generation,” Mr. Elrod said. The next generation is going to be the best-informed generation in American history. Mr. Elrod said a focus on campuses can leave out many younger voters.

US healthcare stocks battered by politics

Investors came to a realization this week that political insiders have been quietly acknowledging for some time now. Not only might self-proclaimed democratic socialist Bernie Sanders win the 2020 Democratic primary, but he could also become the next US president. Healthcare stocks plummeted this week amid coverage of a town hall event hosted by Fox News, during which Sanders’ shocked many observers by the degree to which he connected with the audience. Fox News caters to a conservative audience and the event was held in a city, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, which Donald Trump carried in 2016. Driving the scare among healthcare sector investors is the growing support for Sanders’ Medicare-for-All government insurance plan, which threatens to severely restrict the role private insurers can play. But the fears of Sanders’ signature healthcare plan, a bill for which has been co-sponsored by several of his opponents in the presidential primary contest, may prove to be premature, some analysts say. While Republican strategist Karl Rove warned that – judging from the town hall event – his party may be underestimating Sanders’ appeal to Trump voters, legislation would require more than a 2020 win for the Vermont Senator. “Whether he secures [the Democratic nomination] or not, I don’t think Medicare-for-All happens. So I think there’s a huge opportunity here,” Mark Tepper of Strategic Wealth Partners said in an interview on CNBC. “As a long-term investor, I think you have the opportunity to get in at a good price point right now.” The Health Care Select Sector SPDR (XLV) ETF fell 2.9% on Thursday and is now in the red on the year.
