WTF....I mean.... white women....WTAF!!

55% of white women voters voted for trump this election.
That's more than the 52% of white women voters who voted for trump in 2016.
WTF... just WTF!?

I - foolishly - expected that white women would see trump's misogyny, his hatred of ANYthing that women seem to value, and his boorishness, and reject him soundly.
Am I such an idealist and feminist supporter that I don't recognize that white women can vote against their own interests... even when it's so blatant?

84. It's comparing apples to apples. Exit polling data from 2016 to 2020...

It's certainly possible that both are skewed, but 90% (Gallup) of Republican women approved of trump before the election, and since white Republican women vote Republican, so it seems reasonable that they voted for trump.
94% of black women voted for Biden.
Evangelical women... Republicans all...went big for trump, and evangelicals are 25% of Christians.

OK... it might be skewed, but it's certainly logical. Numerically logical, that is.
Why would ANY woman vote for that misogynist asshole, I have no idea.

47. Who "threatened" to do that? Joe Biden?

I don't remember that speech.

Abolish, Defund, De-militarize, Reform, De-escalate, all are imperfect terms for the type of re-imagining, re-conceptualizing of what America needs in Public Safety. Bottom line, we need less people, less Black and Brown people in particular, summarily and extrajudicially executed by Police gunfire.

It's time for the critics of "Abolish" or "Defund" to propose better terms instead of just carping about what protestors and academics and progressive Congress members who cannot enact major policy shifts said. Protestors and academics and progressive Congress members who have an actual point that White People don't want to listen to.

77. And my point...

Is that it is an extremely not smart thing to say during a national election. While it might play well in certain corners or our party, it does not play well in most of america.

It was a feel good blast of anger. I get that. But next time we need to choose our words to what we mean, not what the rw will twist them into.

If you really want to abolish the police, then by all means use the phrase. If you mean de-militarize, or reform hiring/training/policy, then say that instead.

I fully support de-militarizing police. I fully support changing hiring criteria to get more level headed recruits, change how they are trained to react to both force and resistance, and change how incidents are handled up to and including termination and prosecution. fwiw.

White women who vote for Trump are voting for their own interests, it's just that you are expecting their interests to be something else. Many white women have found that it's easier to give up gender solidarity than white supremacy.

31. White women are not voting against their own interests.

They are keeping themselves, their white husbands, and their white children, on top. WW (like me) have benefitted greatly from affirmative action, and once the doors opened, they slammed the doors right behind them.
Trust me, they assume since Iím white, that Iím one of them. Not a single one will use the N word, but the conversation always gets around to Affirmative Action and how their white children will lose out in the job market because of ďdiversity.Ē Poll the word ďdiversityĒ in the suburbs and see the psychotic reactions that will flow.
White Women are damn good at pretend virtue. See Susan Collins.

According to that same exit poll. Yet somehow white men love nothing more than to blame white women. This is an old story that we heard endlessly from white men in 2016, despite the fact their margins for Trump were far greater.

40. Only 4 of every 10 white voters vote for a Democrat.

That's according to someone on MSNBC. No wonder the repukes fear minorities, that are soon to be the majority.

Did anyone else hear this last week?

43. They aren't voting against their own interests.

Their interests clearly aren't what you think they are.

46. Are these day of exit polls?

If so, they miss the great majority of Democratic votes.

But don't let that stop you from seizing the opportunity to attack white women, who--according to this exit poll-- voted GOP at a lower percentage than white men. I've seen this game before, and it couldn't be more transparent.

65. Why?

Because first of all, exit polls are generally unreliable. Second, this is particularly true this time around with so many votes by mail.

66. " Because first of all, exit polls are generally unreliable" This is false elsewhere in world ...

... no other country puts up with bad polling in their country for this long tilted towards one party.

In America polling is earth splitting horrible elsewhere its pretty reliable.

This is a water is wet point of fact

67. A U S. post office (in TN) was broken into (4x) Just Before Election Day

 

Maybe mail-in ballots were stolen and then fake exit polling fabricated to cover the theft. Maybe vote tabulator computers were rigged. Those systems wirelessly communicate with electronic voting machines. Forensics must be performed...and soon. Focus groups contradict the white women voting block claim. That should be investigated as well.

69. To those rejecting this: white men were 58%

Do you reject that result too? Or just the 55% result for white women? These numbers are essentially the same. Slightly more than half of all white men and women supported trump.

If you do reject the exit poll result then where did trumps votes come from? He got the 2nd most votes in history in the highest turnout election in 120 years (according to election night estimates).

No, the answer is white people love trump. There is virtually no difference between white men and white women in their support for trump. Stop trying to give white women a pass for their trump support.

White women that support trump are not voting against their interests any more than "the white working class" vote against their interests when they vote republican in general. For emphasis: YOUR INTERESTS ARE NOT THEIR INTERESTS. These people vote for systemic racism. They vote for anti-abortion laws. They hate the things you love. That IS their interest. You don't convince them by telling them the other guy is actually the guy that supports their interests. You can only convince them if you change their interests.

75. It's a difference of 3%

the same difference between Biden and Obama's popular vote count. That's not nothing.

The exit polls might be accurate, but they have yet to be weighted, as the caution at the beginning of the article says.

and the results haven't yet been weighted. Given how poor their polling methodology is during the pre-election season, I don't see any reason to believe this is much better.

81. Not surprising

Over the years probably because of Facebook, I've learned of my long ago classmates political leanings. Astonished is the right word.
I gave it years of thought, how could they be conservatives when.... comparing past behaviors, life style etc. And the one thing that
showed up again and again was living a life that revolves around the man. His interests, his needs, likes, dislikes. They don't find anything odd about saying their husband is babysitting the kids. They are quite content living in a "box" and you don't come out of it.
You know girls do this and boys do that. I kid you not. Any woman I've come across that is a Trump supporter does show in some way
being very comfortable as a defined role. Quite accepting of boys will be boys and women are there to provide service, and eye candy.

One of my best friends likes to say I was the wild one. She was a pregnant teen, she sold pink hearts for her gang member boyfriend from the city, in High School. She was put into a program for troubled teens. I almost had whiplash after hearing that. I did none of those things, was always independent, did my own thing, never went along w the crowd. That is what she considered wild.

85. That shows a slight disadvantage to GOTV the white woman vote

likely the extra 2% didn't vote in 2016. I don't see it as likely that 2% of WW voters went from Hillary to Dotard.

The turnout issue is no longer simple.

Though this poll is not thought so good. But another issue is naive apolitical voters who show up to vote dutifully but don't know anything about the candidates - some could be people who think things are OK for them so they vote for the incumbent. Then again, with Covid, that sounds dumb. But then a lot of people are, even colleged educated.

Shocking. Sad. But true. They have no interest in politics and so they "gift" their vote to their husbands.
