    One might think Donald Trump's sexist and vulgar statements would sway female voters away from the candidate. But roughly 53% of white women voted for Trump on Tuesday, CNN reported.

    White women turned out for Trump far more than other minority women. Around 4% of black women and 26% of Latina women voted for the Republican candidate, CNN's exit polls revealed.

    Why white women voted for Trump
    It appears that many women weren't concerned with Trump's comments about women. The official "Women for Trump" website doesn't overlook it — the site, which is not officially affiliated with or supported by the Trump campaign, acknowledge's Trump's sexist comments and rationalizes they make him authentic.

    "That's because he's not working off a TelePrompTer or a script fine tuned by a consultant and focus groups," the Women for Trump site stated. "We look at his actions, not his words."

    Other women brushed off the candidates comments and didn't seem to mind that Trump has talked about assaulting women without their consent.

    "Groping is a healthy thing to do. When you're heterosexual, you grope, okay? It's a good thing," Jane Biddick, a female Trump supporter, told New York Magazine.

    And of course, women likely voted for Trump for the same reasons as men. His criticism of immigrants is comforting to some Republicans and may have given him an edge when it came to Republican-leaning women, the Washington Post reported in April 2016. Trump's rhetoric of taking back the country appealed to women in the Tea Party.

    Why women of color didn't
    Polling numbers reveal black women and Latina women were more apt to show Clinton the love at the polls. A whopping 94% of black women voted for Clinton, down slightly from the 96% of black women that voted for President Obama in 2012.

    Black women are a force: They had the highest turnout out of any group in the 2012 election, the Washington Post reported, noting that 74% of eligible black women cast their vote. In that election, a greater percentage of eligible white women and black women voted compared to eligible white and black men.

    Top issues for black women in American include affordable health care, affordable higher education and living wages — all issues that Clinton said she was committed to addressing, in an interview with Essence.

    Some on Twitter were quick to point out that white women were just as responsible as white men for the Trump presidency, and that black women overwhelmingly stood with Clinton.






    While many might point fingers in the days following the election, one thing is clear: Women didn't take their right to vote for granted on Tuesday.

    In all seriousness, the election demographics are stark. What just occurred in America was white people's last stand at maintaining power in a country where they are losing the race on demographics. No pun intended. What was revealed to me was that we have a significant racial problem not in the way that it's prejudicial but that white man in particular but white people, in general, were looking out into the future and the future doesn't look great for them. It was a total power grab to give them four more years of hope.

    The problem is, the joke is going to be on them. A Trump presidency cannot shift the tides of Globalization. A Trump Presidency cannot turn a white male coal miner into a high-tech manufacturer. It is interesting that we never hear that Rust-Belters need to pull themselves up by their proverbial bootstraps. Yet we hear all the time that Keisha from the hood needs to get an education and get off her ass. The jokes are the people who believe that Trump, a billionaire plutocrat is going to somehow change a situation that is already in place and grant them skills they don't have. I will never understand why people vote against their own interests. I suspect it is because they don't know what their interests are. The gross deficit of basic understanding of government, politics, and high school economics is going to bring America down.

    I have had tremendous trouble thinking about the future. The future of diplomacy. The future of accepting critique. The future of foreign policy decision making. I don't know what is to come and my job is to serve at the pleasure of the administration that is in power. What I saw was the White Man's Last Stand. A friend of mine said it best with a Star Wars analogy. Obama (A New Hope) Trump (The Empire Strikes Back) and hopefully in four years when he is turfed out of office or quits we will have someone new (The Return of the Jedi).

    Doesn't it seem really REALLY odd that White people didn't make a "last stand", when a Black man was running for President...TWICE?

    I don't think it was an option when the black guy ran the first time and it was starting to happen in the second term. I think Trump was masterful at priming his supporters for two years. First with the Birther BS, then with the wall comments. He was basically saying if you don't wake up now you will be replaced as the dominant group. Coupled that with the black lives matter and a resurgence of wokeness in the "Obama Coalition" was enough to get white people scared enough to vote in a pretty transformative way.

    This has been stated for decades since Reagan. If the conversation surrounding how Hillary loss (after two terms of Obama) doesn't begin and end with Hillary and the DNC, liberals are in deep denial.

    I think the rationale is that demographics are not on their side. The GOP has a history and tendency to overreach and overreach hard. White people in America are surely becoming the minority race in the United States. But the issue is that the other minority groups do function as a block, therefore white people can maintain power as long as they are in power.

    I don't know why people are surprised by this. White women are just as invested in maintaining the racial hierarchy of this country as white men. This should be a big wake up call for black women and other non-white women who call themselves feminists. White women are not your allies.

    I was reminded of that recent South Park episode where the women walk out on Garrison (as Trump stand-in) after his sexist remarks and he says something like, "I've talked about Mexicans and Muslims and Immigrants all this time, but THIS is where you draw the line?"

    Not going to lie, I didn't vote for Trump but I've been using his victory as schadenfreude to shut up all the phony ass, smug white liberal feminazis in my office (the ones who talk all that diversity shit and treat the black admin staff like The Help). They've stop talking to me and I just keep cracking jokes with the white male Republicans in the office ("Y'all heard Helen Reddy's new song: I Am Woman, Hear Me Lose!") I'm going to stop at Costco tomorrow and buy a crate of little bags of Cheetos to leave on the break room table with a sign that says "Help Yourself"

    True and that's why her ass lost the election. That and the fact she is just a weak ass candidate. She couldn't beat Obama in the primary in 2008 and he was a lightweight senator that hadn't really done much at that point. I tried to tell one of my coworkers this. He didn't believe me. The corrupt DNC leadership made up its mind that it was "Hillary's turn" after 2 terms of Obama instead trying to run someone that could actually win.

    ....if everyone just voted for Bernie like I did in the primaries we wouldn't have this issue :birdman:.

    But anyways, yeah white women can't be trusted. And that whole Women's March right after the inauguration was suspect. The (white) women who started the movement were the (white) women who voted for him...:maxine:
