Most people here will rush to tell you that a majority of white women went towards Trump but that was more rural women. However you are spot on. I recall the Facebook posts from many “conservative” suburban white women who bleated proudly that although they are a conservative, they acknowledge their white privilege, St. George dindu nuffins, and that Black Lives Matter. Then the pathetic rush to try to pretend they aren’t Karens. Lots of social pressure was applied to suburban white women because they were going to be key for 2020. In 2016, they just assumed they’d all fall in line for Hillary, a mistake that wasn’t repeated in 2020.Suburban white women hated Trump. For them, it really was about mean tweets and crying children in cages. These voters love the idea of loving minorities, the homeless, refugees, and all that. These are also women who tend to be at home and either watching TV or scrolling Facebook much of the day, so they were much more susceptible to the media's constant messaging that Trump was a rude, vile, vicious racist.
