A new poll by Quinnipiac University has Donald Trump beating Hillary Clinton in her own demographic — namely, Caucasian women.
According to ABC News, the poll released Wednesday showed Hillary Clinton with a slight lead over Donald Trump nationally. However, when looking at white women, Trump had a 41 to 40 percent lead over Clinton.
So much for all that war on women rhetoric.
Trump had a bigger lead among white males, with a whopping 60 to 26 percent lead in the polls. Needless to say, ABC News thought it was about time to trot out some “experts” to explain why horrible, neanderthal men might be willing to support Trump.
“This is the group that economically and socially have lost the most ground in America over the last 30 or 40 years,” Bruce Cain, a political science professor at Stanford University, told ABC News on Tuesday.
“There was a time when, by virtue of being a man, you could feel superior to women in the workforce. There was a time when you could make a pretty good living in manufacturing, and that’s disappearing. There was a time when you didn’t feel a lot of competition from immigrants … and that’s disappearing.”
Yeah, damn those white men and the fact that they can’t feel superior any more! Never mind the fact that most of the people being polled probably weren’t even in the workforce when such retrograde opinions were common. That’s their story and they’re sticking to it.
No explanation from Prof. Cain on why women seem to like Trump. If he were able to venture a guess, I would imagine it would involve these cavemen getting their clubs, dragging their objectified wives by their hair to the pollster, and communicating via a series of primitive Cro-Magnon grunts that they wanted her to tell the man with the clipboard that she liked Trump.
Or maybe — and this is just a theory — Trump’s level of support is from people who are fed up with the way the establishment’s system has been working and that Hillary Clinton is about as establishment as they come.
We’ve seen a surprising amount of support for Trump among every demographic, including ones that the Democrats have long believed are in the tank for them. It doesn’t look good for Hillary in November.
