Understanding the White Female Trump voter.

Watching the womenís marches today has put me in a mood.
14 months later and I still canít believe Trump got 53% of the white female vote.

These groups are how I see them (and Iím a male so I could be very wrong):

The one issue anti abortioners.
The one issue super rich low taxers.
The subservient Stepfords that vote as husband or pastor commands.
The low educated, poorly informed that believe all Dems are evil.
Fox News viewers.
Does that comprise 53% of the white female population?

6. For the win.

This is the common denominator of nearly all Trump voters. They're willing to get screwed six ways to Sunday as long as Trump holds out the promise that he'll screw brown people much worse.

4. It illustrates that men and women are indeed equal.

And that women are just as capable of being as stupid and as wrong as men.

Yes, many of these women are part of the social right.

Many are advocates of failed, wrongheaded conservative political/economic doctrine and dogma.

And many are in fact hateful bigots and racists who support Trumpís agenda of bigotry and racism.

10. I dont want to agree with this

Iíve always held out hope that women were more rational and thoughtful and less racist, sexist, etc.
Maybe I was wrong.

11. Well, there is still a large white female-male gap --

Speaking of the white demographic:

Margin by which groups voted for Trump over Clinton:

White men(+31), White women(+9) -- the margin by which white women voted for Trump is less than 1/3 the white men margin

And education matters, which is a positive sign (notably, white college grad women voted for Clinton over Trump by 7 points):

White college grad women(-7), white non-college women(+27),

white college grad men(+14), white non-college men(+48)

14. Huge regional differences too, for example (well this is from 2012, not 2016)

Regional differences come into play big time:

In 2012, Obama won only 10% of the white vote in Mississippi and 15% in Alabama. Overall, Obama won about 46% of the white vote outside the South and 27% of the white vote in the South - Nation 2/25/13

====================================================================
====================================================================

==another one===

Southern white working class - 40 point margin for Romney over Obama, apparently 09/30/12
http://www.courier-journal.com/article/20120930/COLUMNISTS21/309300041/1001/Joseph-Gerth-Polls-suggest-Kentucky-voters-gone-South?odyssey=mod%7Cnewswell%7Ctext%7CHome%7Cp

(note this is a pre-election poll, not an exit poll, but interesting)

...poll conducted a few weeks ago by the Public Religion Research Institute in Washington, D.C., ... that poll found that in the South, among white working class voters, Republican Mitt Romney leads Obama by the astounding vote of 62-22 percent ó a 40 percentage point difference.

The poll defined working class as having less than a bachelorís degree and being paid by the hour or by the job.

No other region in the country had anywhere near that differential. In the West, Romney led by just 5 percentage points among white working class voters. In the Northeast, he leads by 4 percentage points. And in the Midwest, Obama leads Romney by 8 percentage points among white working class voters.

====================================================================
====================================================================

Also, marital status makes a huge difference, at least amongst the white folk:

American Mosaic Exit Poll - Romney's Share of the vote (this is a few results from the Reuters thing)
http://isteve.blogspot.com/2012/11/heres-other-exit-poll-data-that-nobody.html
Here is everything on his chart that includes whites (except white & religion):

Romney's share of the vote

65.0 Married white men ` ` ` ` 50.6 single white men
61.9 Married white women ` ` `44.3 single white women

63.3 married whites ` ` ` ` ` ` 47.5 single whites

58.1 Whites

8. It wasn't 53 percent of the white female population

50% of the eligible population doesn't vote

I think you meant 53% of those white females in the 25% of the eligible voters who voted for Trump

er, something

15. Its mostly racism and their finances depend on their husband so they want to keep white

Male privilege. They get angry at minorities and women who do well and think it's causing their idiot husbands more difficulty.
