Clinton campaign chief Robby Mook doesn’t seem to be worried about his boss’s ability to mobilize the Obama Coalition in 2016:
“That coalition of voters that was so strong for Obama, including young people, we’re seeing in the polling and as Hillary is out campaigning, they’re on board,” Robby Mook told CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
Voters are looking for a president who will be a champion for everyday people, Mook said. For young voters, that means creating the conditions that will allow them to get a college education without taking on debt and find employment after graduation, he added.
For seniors, it means standing up for Social Security and Medicare, two entitlement programs Clinton has a track record of protecting, Mook said.
All that “enthusiasm” explains why Clinton has been campaigning in tiny venues like private homes, and why she polls best among millionaires and billionaires.
