- We do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women.
- And part of that is an identification with the Republican Party, and a sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should.
In a fawning interview with Aroon Purie, India Today’s editor-in-chief, Clinton accused Trump of running a “backwards” campaign that appealed to racists and misogynists.
- I won the places that represent two-thirds of America’s gross domestic product.
- So I won the places that are optimistic, diverse, dynamic, moving forward.
- And (Trump’s) whole campaign, ‘Make America Great Again,’ was looking backwards.
The former secretary of state continued assaulting the intelligence and judgment of the American voter. According to the WSJ’s James Freeman, Mrs. Clinton then warned the Indian audience that a “reality TV” campaign could be coming “to a democracy near you.” Clinton also opined, “It’s going to require a lot more sophisticated analysis” to allow voters to make the correct decision.
Perhaps Mrs. Clinton is selling herself short, notes Mr. Freeman. “Few contestants in the history of reality television have ever sparked such intense reactions from the American public. The next time she runs for President, Mrs. Clinton simply needs to focus on inspiring potential supporters rather than condemning them.”
Who wants a leader who looks down upon them? Which brings up an essential question, Peggy Noonan points out in the WSJ. “To the extent those in the deindustrialized Midwest need help and support, isn’t that what the Democratic Party is for? Doesn’t it exist to help the little guy, the marginalized, the left-behind? That’s what it always said!”
