We’ve written about the role of men in the virulent personal attacks against Hillary in 2016:
We are witnessing an uprising of straight white males, a revolt from the core of the patriarchy. And their singular target is the woman who is inching closer to the presidency than any other woman in history. Between Trump’s torture-loving armies and Bernie’s brigades of misogynistic trolls, the 2016 electorate feels more like a boiling, churning mob than a political movement, a rage-a-thon more than a revolution.
But perhaps the revolution is not the one everyone is talking about. Perhaps the real revolution is this:
The Quinnipiac University survey shows Clinton with 59 percent support in the Sunshine State, followed by Bernie Sanders, her sole remaining rival, with 33 percent support. Clinton, who is vying to become the first female president, makes strong inroads among women in the state, carrying the demographic by a 69-34 percent margin.
Those are astonishing numbers. And it’s not just Florida:
In Massachusetts, Clinton leads by 21 points among female voters — with a 41-point margin among women over the age of 50.
Quietly, steadily, women are carrying Hillary to victory.
2016 is shaping up to be a revolution 227 years in the making.
