    "due to his young age, he’s a Sanders supporter.” 

    You realize that's a slap at Sanders supporters, right?  The younger, less educated, and less aware of the world you are, the more likely you support Sanders.

    Only you would interpret it this way. It is a simple demographic fact that voters under 45 supported Clinton by a wide margin, with college age voters supporting her by an even wider margin.

    Your argument also falls apart in many other ways. Sanders did will against Clinton in those who had more advanced education. Sanders supporters are more aware of the world, picking Sanders who has been right on the major issues over the last few decades, while Clinton has generally been wrong, now being forced to flip-flop on so many issues. The young are right in opposing Clinton’s neocon foreign policy, which has been a disaster, and in opposing a candidate as dishonest and corrupt as her. The young tend to be more libertarian, and won’t go with her support for increased restrictions on civil liberties to fight terrorism and oppose dissent, or her hostility towards government transparency. The young are also more secular and don’t go along with her conservative social views and support for an increased role of religion in public policy.

    "Voters under 45" don't have much in common with newborn children.  The defining characteristics of the latter include no education whatsoever and no knowledge of the world. They don't have advanced educations, don't oppose Clinton's fictional neocon foreign policy, don't believe the right-wing lies about her being dishonest, corrupt, in favor of restrictions on civil liberties and against dissent and transparency. Most newborns are quite secular.

    (Btw, according to a USA Today poll, against Trump "Clinton would carry young men and women by almost identical margins of more than 2-1."  http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/elections/2016/03/14/poll-millennials-clinton-sanders-trump-president/81612520/ )

    Read what Fallon actually said, and you quoted.  Perhaps you'd better use your moderation hammer.

    “Read what Fallon actually said, and you quoted.”

    Fallon said nothing about this. The quote was from Seth Meyers. Your second mistake is failing to note that his condition was “due to his young age” not due not due to being a baby. That is the joke, which you failed to understand–lumping babies with all other young people. Once again your biases prevent you from comprehending what doesn’t fit in.

    “Clinton would carry young men and women by almost identical margins of more than 2-1.”

    As would be expected, but that is quite different from the support for Sanders over Clinton–and the likelihood of far greater turn out if Sanders as opposed to Clinton is the nominee. It probably won’t matter, considering what an inept campaign Trump is running, but against a stronger Republican opponent that could make a difference in the general election.

    Sorry, I didn't realize they were two different people. I assume they're on TV somewhere.

    Says who?

    So you have no idea who he is and yet you argue about the interpretation.

    Says who? Says Meyers in his joke as quoted.
