It’s not clear how you can legitimately attribute her demise to misogyny. Female voters did not like her, perhaps even less than male voters. It’s hard to name a major Democrat demographic group that did support her. She did very poorly with Black and Latino voters. She had no lane. And she did have baggage, very heavy baggage with tags marked Pocahontas. She pretended to be a Native American and thereby gained affirmation action benefits that should have gone to a legitimate recipient. She publicized an ill-conceived blood test that only proved her native heritage was a fraud and in the process managed to get real tribal leaders to denounce her. Most recently she made a charge about what Bernie Sanders had said to her over two years ago about a woman’s chance to be President. Virtually everyone perceived her to be vastly exaggerating what was said in their private conversation. It just did not ring true. She was widely believed to be in league with CNN, other mainstream media and establishment party leaders in a not-so-covert attempt to stop Bernie. It all backfired on her and she has been in a tailspin since then. Her attack on Bernie alienated voters who did not even support him. Misogyny had little to do with it.
