“A sort of ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever, believes you should,” Clinton said about losing the white women vote to Trump.
Hillary Clinton said that white women voted for President Trump during the 2016 presidential election because their husbands told them to, during a discussion at the India Today Conclave on Saturday.
The moderator asked Clinton why she thinks almost 52 percent of white women voted for Trump, despite them knowing about the controversial “Access Hollywood” tape.
“[Democrats] do not do well with white men and we don’t do well with married, white women,” Clinton explained. “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.”
Clinton then said that she was doing well with white women until former FBI Director James Comey released a letter announcing the FBI had reopened its investigation into Clinton’s email practices.
“It stopped my momentum, and it decreased my vote enough,” Clinton said of the Comey letter.
