Minority leader Nancy Pelosi was at Democratic convention on Tuesday
Said in interview ‘three G’s’ explained Trump’s popularity with white men
In that case, ‘God’ referred to women’s right to choose, Pelosi added
Sarah Palin, who has endorsed Trump, replied with a heart emoji for men
Poll shows college-educated white people support both candidates equally
Nancy Pelosi believes that many white men who didn’t go to college support Donald Trump because of social issues – a claim that Sarah Palin has refuted with a heart emoji.
The minority leader of the US House Of Representatives spoke on PBS NewsHour earlier this week while at the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia.
‘I think that, so many times, white — non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose,’ Pelosi told Gwen Ifill and Judy Woodruff.
White, working-class men have drifted away from the Democratic party over the past decades and in some states, only 10 per cent of them supported Barack Obama, Newsweek wrote in 2014.
One explanation behind that shrinking support is that Democrats’ liberalism has driven away white, working-class men who do not always share the same beliefs.
This has driven many of them to support the Republican nominee, even though he may not serve their economic interests, according to Pelosi.
In her ‘three G’s’ theory, God represented women’s right to choose to have an abortion, Pelosi added.
Sarah Palin, who has endorsed Trump, responded to Pelosi’s theory on Friday with a simple ‘I guess I [heart] men’ – with a heart emoji instead of the verb.
White people with a college education supported Trump and Clinton equally according to a recent Washington Post-ABC News poll.
Forty-two per cent of them supported Clinton and 43 per cent favored Trump, the data showed.
Data for white people without a college education showed a stronger divide, which reflected Pelosi’s claim: 60 per cent of white, non-college-educated people supported Trump, while 33 per cent leaned towards Clinton.
