November 18, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

The continuing support among White women for President Donald Trump is about a problem much older than Trump, say Fatima Goss Graves and Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner -- and which demands from lawmakers and voters alike a set of solutions that will long outlast him.

(CNN)How could a majority of White women support President Donald Trump?

After four long years of unprecedented political engagement that inspired everything from national marches to voter registration drives to Black Lives Matter lawn signs, how could as many as 55% of White women still support a President who had proved so harmful to them and the people of color many often claim to support -- leaving Black women, 90% of whom voted for Biden and Harris according to early data, to help save our democracy once again?
