From New York to Los Angeles, thousands of people took to the streets denouncing Donald Trump’s stunning victory in the U.S. presidential election. Last weekend, a crowd assembled at the City Hall in downtown L.A. The protesters and organizers said the demonstration is about speaking out against Trump’s draconian positions on deportation and other measures. The protesters expressed themselves peacefully.
According to Edison national election poll, 54 percent of women voted for Hillary Clinton, much higher than the 42 percent of women who voted for Trump. But when the women’s vote is divided by race, Clinton gained significantly more votes from African-American and Latina women. It was largely this demographic poole that drove the so-called gender gap against Trump.
