As Hillary Clinton Sweeps States, One Group Resists: White Men

Patrick Healy, New York Times – March 17, 2016

White men narrowly backed Hillary Clinton in her 2008 race for president, but they are resisting her candidacy this time around in major battleground states, rattling some Democrats about her general-election strategy.

Differences Between Men and Women Voters Widen in 2016

Emily Cadei, Newsweek – March 15, 2016

In 2008, Hillary Clinton mostly avoided gender in her presidential campaign, waiting until her concession speech that June to acknowledge how close she’d come to shattering “that highest, hardest glass ceiling.” This year is different. Clinton regularly cites her potential for making history as the first woman to become president and reiterates her new role as grandmother to appeal to female supporters.

Enough With Hillary Detractors—Let’s Scrutinize Young Male Voters

Laura Bates, TIME – February 12, 2016

Seeing greater diversity in political representation shouldn’t be a women’s issue at all—we should demand that the consideration of diversity be a priority for all voters, not just those whose characteristics match those of a particular candidate.

A Key Reason Young People Don’t Support Hillary Clinton? They Don’t Have Daughters.

Michael Tesler, The Washington Post – February 11, 2016

Young parents of daughters are between 21 and 48 percentage points more likely to support Hillary Clinton than young parents of only sons (after accounting for their total number of children).  By contrast, the daughter effect on Clinton support for parents ages 30 and older is between 5 and 13 points.

Young Male Voters Proving Key for Sanders in New Hampshire

Heidi M. Przybyla, USA Today – February 8, 2016

Gloria Steinem may have been right about one thing: Bernie Sanders is where the boys are. The feminist icon took heat late last week for saying that young women are supporting Sanders to meet boys as an explanation of why Hillary Clinton is struggling with this demographic (Steinem later apologized). But perhaps more interesting is the extent to which men are aligned with Sanders, who enjoys a 46-point advantage with male voters in New Hampshire, according to a recent CNN/WMUR poll. It’s that overwhelming advantage that’s helped give the Vermont senator a healthy lead in the Granite State, which holds its first-in-the-nation primary on Tuesday.

If Bernie Sanders Wins in Iowa, it Will Be Because Men There Don’t Like Hillary Clinton

Alvin Chang, Vox – January 20, 2016

If Bernie Sanders wins the Iowa caucus, it will be on the backs of Iowa men. This is a group that, in recent Quinnipiac polls, favored Sanders by such a large margin that they brought him to within 5 points of Hillary Clinton. It’s also a group that doesn’t like Clinton — with about 33 percent saying they have an unfavorable opinion of her in the same poll. And it’s a group that isn’t representative of the rest of American men.

Progressive Brothers: You Don’t Have to Hate Hillary to Love Bernie (and Don’t Drag Elizabeth Warren Into It)

Peter Daou, Blue Nation Review – January 19, 2016

Every time I raise the issue of sexism in 2016, every time I point out that the blind, irrational hatred of Hillary is driven by more than just support for her opponent, I get the same response: Elizabeth Warren. Somehow, it’s OK to bash one female politician if you can name another one you like.
