The cost of grabbing them by the pussy

Nate Silver has the sobering details:

So here’s the thing.

Women are OK with misogynists like Bill Clinton because they can pour on the charm. ?However, in the absence of natural charm, they want some kind of MacGyver boy scout running the country.

Nobody gets to their 50s or 60s without having 1) messed up, and 2) matured.

The fact that Trump has a foul mouth on him surely isn’t attractive, but for women to let that colour the rest of their views is breathtakingly dishonest. ?JFK was all over the place, on drugs and inside every 3rd woman he could slow down long enough.

But this is the era of safe spaces and letting other people hurt us so we can feel morally superior about how civilised we are.

Trump is a bull in a China shop. ?He’s not very likeable. ?But he’s not being asked to run a battered women’s shelter. ?He’s going to try and bring jobs back to America, to get the States out of fights it has no business being in, and coming down hard on people that are trying to hurt it.

I’d rather have a misogynistic social dinosaur in charge of that rather than someone who is going to win X-Factor Politics.

All that said, the Trump camp have a huge problem on their hands. ?Coming second in a presidential race is the same as coming last. ?The Clinton Machine is formidable, and it has been amazing to see Trump pull within 2-3% of it with the amateur hour organic media outrage approach.

The only thing that is not factored in is the “shame component” of voters not wanting to tell pollsters that they will secretly vote for Trump anyway, because as woman, being asked who they would vote for, they can’t tell another person that they’d do so.
