TPM Reader ML reports from the U Street Metro station:
All those folks concern trolling about affluent 18-34 yr olds angering the masses are in for a surprise. More than half the people at this customarily youthful outpost (u street metro station) are well out of that age cohort. One problem: almost all white people.
Couldn’t get on train…too many ppl. Very few young ones. The demographic is genuinely surprising.
TPM video intern Clayton Ashley reports in from Amtrak:
Saw the front page post wondering about what the demographics of the RtRSa/oF will be and from what I’ve seen on my New York to DC train, I’d say it’s looking like an all ages event. Saw an elderly woman with a big rally button and a father with his young daughter making a sign that says “I’d rather be Trick-or-Treating”. And I think it probably says a lot of the type of people attending that my Amtrak train is full if them.
