Oops: Women weary of Hillary- 'I'm NOT with her'...

Contrary to what Hillary and the Democrat Party believe, a lot of women are not voting for Hillary despite her being a woman.
  It doesn’t work the same way as Blacks voting for Obama because he’s Black.  With Hillary it’s a totally different dynamic because the baggage she brings and because of her own record of failures.    

The Guardian reports Anoa Changa is a feminist who isn’t going to vote for Hillary Clinton. Last July, when the 34-year-old Atlanta-based attorney began volunteering with the grassroots organization Women for Bernie Sanders, she received immediate pushback from other women. Over social media, they accused her and other Sanders volunteers of betraying their gender, and of being fake feminists. Even former professors and friends questioned how she could support the Vermont senator over the secretary of state.

“Some women I encounter act as if I’ve betrayed some kind of secret society,” says Changa. “I reject this brand of feminism. I’m not only voting for my gender, I’m voting for other issues.”

For the first time in its history, America is close to electing a female president, yet many women from across the political spectrum don’t like Clinton.
It’s true that, as a whole, women support her more than both Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders, but that support is not nearly as overwhelming as black voter support was for Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012. Millennial women, for example, prefer Sanders to Clinton and 49% of American women give the secretary of state an unfavorable rating.

  1. As a Norwegian-American, I'm in a real quandry this year as neither likely candidate has Norwegian ancestry.

    I could vote on the basis of hair color, except they're both blond and I have brown hair.

    I was born in New York, but both candidates are New Yorkers, so that's no help.

    I heard someone suggest that instead of looking at ways in which candidates resemble me genetically, I should consider their positions on the issues. Of course I laughed at this insane idea.
