Title: More Than Half of White Women in the US Voted For Trump, but Why?
Post by: asitrony on November 21, 2016, 05:41:42 PM

According to exit polls, 53 percent of white women voted for Donald Trump. Before we attempt to unite the country politically, American women need to bring our own gender party together. No matter what your stance on the economy, foreign policy, or other issues, we women must rally together to elect a candidate in 2020 who openly respects our gender, takes sexual assault seriously (and hasn't been accused of it), and will actively campaign on behalf of women's rights, be it the choice to have an abortion or equal pay. When we break it down by gender and race, however, we learn that 53 percent of white women cast their ballots for Trump, while 94 percent of black women and 68 percent of Latina women voted for Clinton.
