House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Hillary Clinton does not get the support from white males “because of guns, because of gays, and because of God.”

Appearing on PBS Newshour’s coverage of the Democratic National Convention on Tuesday night, host Judy Woodruff said, “Right now, Donald Trump is doing much better than Hillary Clinton among white men, and particularly white men who have not attended college. How does Hillary Clinton counter that?”

Pelosi replied, “With an economic agenda to create jobs, good-paying jobs, increasing paychecks, the economic agenda is what is really– it’s about the economy. You know that statement. It’s not a cliche. It’s a fact. And I think that so many times white, non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interest because of guns, because of gays, and because of God.”

“The three ‘Gs,’ God being the woman’s right to choose,” Pelosi said. “That is softening. Some of those people were never going to be voting Democratic anyway. But I believe that with the turnout that we expect to have, we will draw some of them in with our message, and enough other people to win the election” as noted by the NTK Network.
