For this cohort, the concern isn’t necessarily their own finances. “My life wouldn’t change either way,” Frable said about the material difference between a Clinton and Trump presidency. “I don’t think my taxes will be better or worse with one or the other.” But she felt confident that her children will find better jobs after college with Trump in office, and she talked with longing about his promise to restore jobs, like one she remembers a friend of her father’s had, working in an auto factory in Detroit. “If we could have export agreements with, say, France or Germany, or let’s face it, Russia, they would take our quality goods and we could be great again,” Frable said.
All of this — along with other items on the Trump “wish list,” as Frable put it, like defeating ISIS and cracking down on border security — matters far more to her than anything Trump said about women or was accused of doing to them. Anyway, given Bill Clinton’s history, how can Hillary complain? “I have disrespect for Hillary for not doing more for herself, not standing up for herself with him,” Frable said. “That’s more damaging than goofball words Trump came up with.”
