Corporate media is racking their collective brains to figure out who’s fault the election was. Hint: It starts with an “H” and ends with an “illary Clinton.” Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.
“Voting in America is over. Donald Trump has emerged victorious over Hillary Clinton and will become the 45th President of the USA.
Early signs as to how this unexpected result occurred can be seen in demographic exit poll data, with Clinton doing worse than expected among women, Hispanic voters and African Americans.
By comparing Clinton’s performance to Obama’s in 2012 it is easy to see that she failed to appeal to a number of key voter groups. Groups that it was predicted she would have more support from.
Donald Trump’s problems with women have been well documented in the media. He has consistently made derogatory remarksagainst women, calling some “dogs” and “slobs”.
At the beginning of October a tape of Trump apparently celebrating sexual assault in a conversation with Billy Bush was released by the Washington Post. It led to a series of allegations against Trump as women came forward to speak out, causing his polling numbers to slump.
This was thought to have helped to drive women to vote for Clinton, with some polls showing a double-figure divide between men and women’s support for the presidential candidates.”*
