9. Because sexism/racism are often blamed because the person has no control over either.

 

But the things they DO have control over get passed over.
I think she got as much or more coverage by the media as the other candidates in her support range. She had a problem with black support, not white support, apparently due in part to her actions as Atty Gen in CA.
Elizabeth warren has been in the top 3 pretty much the entire race so far; most criticisms of her dont relate to her being a woman. Many of the same criticisms she gets are leveled at Sanders.
Does racism & sexism exist? Of course. But in large enough numbers of people to affect the early stages of the Democratic party primary? I doubt it. And yes, Obama. All these "racists" in Iowa picked HIM in '08 before he was even well known!
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
