Saturday Night KAABOO Riotous Behavior Angers Del Mar Residents

Del Mar Councilman Al Corti, who lives near the fairgrounds, said Saturday’s security woes were an unacceptable failure. Nearby residents have complained about the festival in the past, but mostly in the form of noise complaints. He said noise is a minor issue compared to the evening’s unruly behavior. 

“From my perspective, dangerous traffic and riots cannot be tolerated for any amount of money,” Corti said. “Kaaboo and the fairgrounds should take responsibility for their lack of oversight.”

One woman caught in the fray described the scene as “extremely dangerous.”

Worry About Hillary’s Hispanic Strategy

While Clinton holds a significant lead over Republican rival Donald Trump in every poll of Hispanic voters, less clear is whether these voters will turn out in numbers that Democrats are counting on to win. Clinton trails President Obama’s 2012 performance in several ­Latino-rich states, including Florida, Nevada, Colorado and Arizona. In those same states, on which Democrats’ prospects of retaking the Senate hinge, some down-ballot Democrats remain unknown to many Hispanic voters.

Even though Hillary Clinton has been leading in the polls, she has been trailing in her own goal to motivate and excite the young voters that formed the core of Barack Obama’s winning coalition in 2008 and 2012. Obama won 60% of these voters under the age of 30 during the re-election campaign, according to 2012 exit polls. Clinton’s support stands at 48% in these ages, according to a CBS News/New York Times poll released Sept. 15. Among the same voters, Republican nominee Donald Trump trails at 29% support, and 21% of respondents said they would support another candidate or stay at home.
