The elections are now over and a winner for the presidency has been announced. Donald Trump will begin his Presidential term in 2017. Trump won in huge numbers and it looks like it was from the help of women. Here’s the breakdown.
According to CNN,
CNN exit polls show roughly 53% of white female voters didn’t care about Trump’s sexist rhetoric and voted him for president of the United States. To add insult to injury, MIC reports Trump won a high number of Latino voters as well.
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.
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.
