Jim Geraghty asked a pertinent question while writing for National Review. He asked how Hillary Clinton will fare against Donald Trump when she can't face Bernie Sanders' angry populist campaign in the Democratic primaries. Problem faced by Hillary Clinton is that she is losing voters in the age group of 17 to 29 years by 68 points and those from the age group of 30 to 44 by 27 points. Democratic voters find Sanders more honest and caring about people.
