Tesla and Trump may need each other

Here’s how people aged 18 to 25 supposedly voted, according to Survey Monkey. That’s a dubious polling organization? Well, let’s assume this is still somewhat accurate:


And here’s which stocks they own, according to MarketWatch:


Unless Trump wants a youth revolt, he’ll have to go easy on Tesla. In fact, Trump could score a massive win with young people if he backs Tesla. He didn’t need the youth vote this time, but these peeps will be four years older and more influential when Trump is up for reelection, and a new crop of even more rabid Tesla fans will backfill.

Moreover, if Trump wants to make American great again, he’ll surely acknowledge that Tesla is already making American ingenuity and manufacturing great again. Plus, both Trump and Musk are at least mildly irritated at China’s protectionist shenanigans. Look at the agita Tesla has suffered just trying to qualify for Chinese EV incentives, despite the overwhelming air pollution problem. TeslaMondo thinks there’s enough common ground to supersede the other stuff and make Elon and Trump strange bedfellows. Very.

Here’s hoping against hope for some camaraderie between President Bunker and Meathead Musk.

    Let’s just hope that for the EV movement in general that the CAFE regulations don’t find themselves on the chopping block. Or for the “environmental movement” in general, that the EPA doesn’t. After all, his platform, in as much as he has one, calls for zeroing out all clean energy funding: http://bit.ly/2fkcFgS.
