#1 Fairfax County is one of the five wealthiest counties in the nation. They're gummit employees or spouses of gummit imployees. I'm not sure how much gender has to do with it. Please see graphic for details.

#2 Also, some of them (I am married to one) don't like Trump - at all, or Cruz, or some of the state-level officials because they are not nice people. They're not moderate. They don't cooperate to get things done, like in the old days.

I am NOT going to be the one to point out national elections are not a high-school popularity contest.

#3 ...reason number 4,873,921 why women should be required to register for service as men have been called upon since the start of the republic.

If you've ever been bitten by a rabid dog, the cure is damn painful. The alternative is worse. Sometimes you have to put up with distasteful to survive.

#4 It's never a good idea to disparage people who - this time? - didn't vote for you. Hillary found this out the hard way (remember the deplorables).

You better figure out why they didn't vote for you.

I consider myself an intelligent conservative. That doesn't mean I have to like Trump.

#5 EC, If you don't recognize Trump as part of the solution, you are part of the problem.

#6 EC - have you seen the upturn in US futures (economics, jobs, and otherwise)? If so you might notice my Who Gives a F*ck?

#8 Trump works about 18 hours per day. Soetoro SLEPT about 18 hours per day.

#9 I consider myself an intelligent conservative. That doesn't mean I have to like Trump.

You don't have to like him. But when the alternative is Hillary Clinton, you damn well better vote for him.

#10 Politics should not be a popularity contest.

#11 E.C. is correct. Figure out _why_ they voted the way they did. Insults like "they do not think seriously" won't win any new votes. If they don't like Trump's style, explain why accomplishments are more important. Don't say things that will rile them up.

#12 Don't say things that will rile them up.

Last thing ya wanna do is make the white wimmens more hysterical.

#13 How do we know that Suburban women cost the Pubs the election? The Dems aren't done counting rigging the votes in several elections

#14 There should not be a strike-through through the word "done".

#15 @Abu Uluque
"But when the alternative is Hillary Clinton, you damn well better vote for him."

But the alternative is no longer Hillary Clinton. When a guy like Beto almost wins in Texas you better start thinking fast.

@Frank G
In 2 years the economy may not look the same. How will Trump fare in troubled times?

#16 they will be troubled because the Dems ankle-bit him and his economic policies. He'll tear them up
