Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton admitted that maybe she could have worked harder at trying to reassure white voters during the 2016 election in a podcast interview Tuesday.
Clinton said that while she won most of the minority vote during the 2016 election, she could have done a better job at reassuring the fears of white voters and women while talking with an Economists podcast Tuesday.
“Forget about the white men’s vote! But I think I myself could have perhaps done a better job in reaching out and reassuring women and white voters in general, and I think I was on my way to winning as I say in the book, until Jim Comey’s letter, aided and abetted by the Russian WikiLeaks information weaponisation,” Clinton told The Economist Asks.
Trump won the majority of white evangelical voters, while Clinton suffered in gaining votes from white women and women who didn’t have a college education.
“Preliminary exit poll results show that while she won women by 12 points overall (Trump won men by the same margin, a historic gender gap),1 Clinton lost the votes of white women overall and struggled to win women voters without a college education in states that could have propelled her to victory,” Five Thirty Eight noted after the election.
Clinton also said she didn’t blame white voters for being wary of voting for her after former FBI Director James Comey announced another investigation into her emails.
“So I don’t blame voters for feeling like okay, it’s okay to vote for me, but then having something interrupt that thought process and their decision being put on hold and eventually going against me,” Clinton added.
