Abstract

On Election Day 2016, 40 percent of American women voted for Donald Trump, despite his well-known history of sexual misconduct. In new research, Mark Setzler and Alixandra B. Yanus examine the attitudes of Trump's women voters to try to understand more about why so many voted for the now-President. They find that the attitudes of Trump's women voters were no different than men’s: even more than partisanship, both groups were influenced by sexism and racial resentment.
