Pelosi Cites ‘God, Guns, and Gays’ For Why Clinton Struggles with White Men

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 10.41.24 AMLast night, former  Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi gave her reasons for why Hillary Clinton is losing the white male vote. On PBS’s ‘News Hour’, she claimed that ‘guns, gays, and God’ are the reason why white men aren’t voting for Hillary.

You can watch Pelosi’s interview below:

“I think that, so many times, white — non-college-educated white males have voted Republican. They voted against their own economic interests because of guns, because of gays, and because of God, the three G’s, God being the woman’s right to choose,” Pelosi said to PBS’s Judy Woodruff on Wednesday.

While Pelosi stated those three reasons, she also said that she believes Hillary will be able to gain more white male votes because of her “economic agenda to create jobs, good-paying jobs, increasing paychecks.”

It is Pelosi’s hope that Clinton will be able to draw more votes away from Donald Trump with her platform.

“Some of those people were never going to be voting Democratic anyway. But I believe that, with the turnout that we expect to have, we will draw some of them in with our message, and enough other people to win the election,” she said.
