Steyer Has a Plan to Reach Millennials: Dogs

Liberal megadonor Tom Steyer’s political operation, NextGen America, has a plan to attract millennial voters to the polls this November: use puppies as bait.

NextGen America has nearly 800 organizers on more than 400 college campuses in Wisconsin, Florida, Arizona, Nevada, Iowa, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and is dedicated to getting millennial voters to register to vote.

Millennial voters are notoriously “averse to going to the polls on Election Day,” compared to other generations.

But, NextGen America has a plan to change that, according to the Daily Caller:

“Dubbed the “Pups to the Polls” campaign, the strategy includes attracting the attention of college-aged kids with therapy dogs, luring them to voter registration tents and encouraging them to actually vote as they pet cute canines. The campaign is already underway, where University of Wisconsin-Madison students returning from summer break were greeted with small dogs they could scratch.”

This isn’t the first time that Steyer has used animals to reach millennials. Last year, NextGen America hosted a petting zoo at Arizona State University to register millennial voters as part of the group’s $2 million investment in the state.
