Donald Trump's paternal grandparents were German immigrants in 1885. His mother was a Scottish immigrant around 1930. They did not come on the Mayflower, as one speaker in this video claimed. See

Trump is most likely to win the California Republican primary. See
http://www.270towin.com/2016-republican-nomination/california-primary

Keep in mind Trump already has won the New York and Pennsylvania Republican primary, 2 large Northern states. He is most likely to win Indiana, a state as big as Massachusetts which Trump won. See
http://www.nytimes.com/elections/results/massachusetts

As you can see on the national map, Trump is winning the usual Republican states in the Republican primary, plus some that usually vote Democrat in November. See
http://www.nytimes.com/elections/2016/national-results-map

The majority of voters are over age 45. See
http://www.post-gazette.com/news/nation/2011/05/04/U-S-voting-majority-now-age-45-and-up/stories/201105040247

The median age of Americans is 37. See World Almanac 2016, p. 610.

In 2008, Democrat won with 52% of the vote; McCain received 45% of the vote.

Assuming Clinton is the Democrats’ candidate in 2016 and Trump is the Republican candidate, Clinton will have to fight an uphill battle to win because the presidential race in a large country like the USA is a referendum on the economy, which is again in big trouble. The Gross Domestic Product slowed to .5% of annual growth in the First Quarter of 2016. It had been higher in the previous 3 quarters. Clinton will have to hope there is no recession before election day. Otherwise, Trump wins. The name of the game is always money. See

The older generation has long ago passed the torch to the young. The young must do labor organizing if they want any serious change in this country. Elections do not create change; they reflect the class struggle that has preceded them, if any.
