I believe that the charisma syndrome that elected Bill Clinton , also elected Barack Obama , is now ALSO choosing Hilary over Trump . Why , Trump doesn't have the charisma that either candidate had then . No matter what one believes about the issues is charisma more important than substance to women?
Trump does have charisma, it just a matter of from whose point of view. What is considered substance for you may well not be substance for others. You attempt to objectivefy something that is subjective and a matter of opinion.
Having chrisma is part of the selection process, but it is a part, not all. JFK had charisma, was he a poor president?
As a matter of fact Kennedy wasn't the greatest was he , the girls , the drugs , the cover-ups ,the wars , the false hero-izing , Truth is not subjective , there is only one of those to be had . Perhaps that is the difference between now and then though , It's all there for us to see today , all we have to do is filter through the garbage and there you have it , are you good at filtering , Hilary supporters apparently ,are not ?
Isn't disclosure good for the soul? Your truth and my truth are different, this is not mathematics, it is social science.
One example, no JFK was not the greatest, can we go with Ronald Reagan? Surely you have no problem seeing him as charismatic. You conservatives seem to believed that he walked on water, how does the substance verses charisma argument hold up now?
That is the first time I have heard say Hillary has charisma. I don't think so.
Agree. I believe that's been one of her problems.
If she were charismatic, the GOP would be out of the race since it started, even with all of her issues.
Their not Voting for her image , but the misconstrued charisma of Obama , Bill , and her riding the train , ....Add in one serving of political correctness. Boom! , there you have it .
LOL. Men are, for the most part (in my opinion) single issue voters. Give them a candidate who supports gun rights and they are in like flint. Forget the rest.
Women don't vote according to charisma. I don't, anyway. And no women I know do.Women do tend to be more liberal minded than men so that might account for their support of democratic candidates.
I have a female 'friend ' who says ." I could never vote for Trump I just hate his hair !" talk about a single issue voter .
I am a guy and I am not a single issue, flintlock sort.
I disagree about men being single issue voters , men are lineal thinkers and women are emotional thinkers , that I do know .
Women think about things differently, so you consider that a negative? Do you want to repeal the 19th Amendment?
I have years of anecdotal experience to refute that claim about men but, if you say so.
If the issue is big enough (in the mind of the voter) any of us are single issue. How many women cast a vote based solely on abortion position? Clinton herself said that would be the #1 consideration about any of her SCOTUS nominations.
And single issues often "morph" into much wider things - gun control becomes unconstitutional actions to control people overall. So does abortion, for that matter - we're forever hearing about women's "rights" to their own bodies.
Point well taken. I've never been a single issue voter but I have had women badger me to support pro choice candidates simply because of that stand. That's a problem I have with minorities. We, women, should never vote simply by what we can gain. One needs to take into account the needs of the entire country. Abortion is not an issue to draw a line in the sand with.
The needs of the country seem a far, dim memory to most voters anymore. It is far more about what they want, what they can get or how they can control others. Very sad, and I fear the results of such thinking.
Bless your heart. Its going to be alright. Don't worry, it will get better.
I'm sure either Trump or Hillary will break the fever in the next four years and then we can start cleaning up the mess. I think 2020 will be a one-issue election - the 2016 election.
The problem is that what is considered good for the entire country depends upon your perspective view on things. Conservatives always talk about the good of the country, saying liberals are focused on single issues. But they conveniently ignore their own narrow ideological desires on society, calling it 'for the good of the country'.
I agree that Obama and Bill do have charisma, but I have always seen through them.
Hillary tries to come off charismatic but has zero, she comes off fake.
I have watched many older videos and new and I see that Trump can be genuinely charismatic. Maybe that's more of a guy thing? (I know its not excullsive)
Charisma does matter in an election normally. This election is like none-other.
I'd love to see a video where Trump appears charismatic. I just can't see it. Never have. He kind of makes my skin crawl.
Oh for the love of... yes of course women choose who to vote for mainly on the basis of 'charisma'. They couldn't possibly be choosing on the basis of things like. . . I dunno. . . policy, or the fact that one of the candidates is openly racist and sexist and talks about groping women. Nope. For women it's all about Charisma.
Come on, at least try to bring your mindset into the 21st century. Good grief.
~ In my observation, women do not support each other as well as men support each other. In the work place they are very competitive.
Many cringe at her voice. I do.
She has no charisma whatsoever. But what she stands for does. The Hillary campaign is a hippie dream the old hippies had and the wanna be hippies are still pursuing. It is ANCIENT archaic Nonsense in my mind.
Hippiedom has always been charismatic. The original movement pretty much died with Manson and the murders. Am I way off?
You are correct about that Kathryn ! I have not quite looked at it that way , The new hippy dream , and the Sanders following ?
Chesse and rice! Could a question be more condescending? Girls, why are you even posting a comment? A Horse back (did I get that name right?) Is that enough substance for an answer?
Perhaps we have reached a point where millennia's will be the electors for some period ," Oh My God No" , he screams !

Who is more charismatic ; Obama or Trump and why?
by N B Yomi 2 years ago
I won't be voting in the 2016 election, as all the candidates who did seem to have good sense lost, and the two vying for office... Don't seem to be very bright... But aside from that, it feels like a set up, as a means to manipulate history. Neither is doing anything to breed confidence, and feels...

With his numbers crumbling with women, the Republican Establishment realizes that there's no way they can give him the nomination of their party. He finally offended one group too many with his statements against Megyn Kelly, a woman's right to choose, and Cruz's wife.

Hey, Hubbers, watch this Vogue's women empowerment video by Bollywood actress Deepika Padukone. She has been taking a lot of heat for this. At first people praised her, but soon many began to criticize her. They say it's hypocritical. I personally agree with the message of the film. I wanted to...
