Her name is a pseudonym because she voted for Trump in New York City and has a business, which explains why I believe she is real and not a writer's ploy to express opinion as fact.
From the Fiscal Times:
Want to Know Why Democrats Voted for Trump? Ask Mrs. P.
As they navel-gaze, wondering why one of the biggest election machines in the country’s history lost to an under-funded, untutored, political outsider who was continually slammed by the media, Democrats should focus on -- Mrs. Perleman.
Mrs. Perleman, who owns and operates a successful skin care salon, voted for Donald Trump. She does not broadcast that decision because she lives in Manhattan and like so many others, has been shamed into hiding her choice. She is especially cautious since many of her clients are female and distraught that Hillary Clinton lost. (Respecting her discretion, this is not her real name.)The quotes from Mrs. P (and I think using Perleman was wrong because someone named Perleman might have friends who will think it is her) are pretty encouraging:
“I do not have a racist bone in my body. I am tired of being told that I am racist and that this is a racist country. It is Obama who has brought race back to the conversation and who has divided the country.”The article went on to discuss Obamacare's impact on small businesses.
However, considering this was the first time she voted Republican, Obamacare was not the problem. If it were
No, it was calling her racist and deplorable that doomed the Democrats.
I do not see how you turn that around. Democrats crossed a line that cannot be walked back without losing a black vote for every white vote you gain.
You see how racial identity works?
That's a lesson for the media. Why should I trust people who called me racist?
