First AOC, now Hillary.
As the 2016 election was nearing, Hillary’s pollsters were giving her daily polls. The story is that she decided that she didn’t want to hear them any more, because they stated how the people viewed her as unlikable. Maybe not paying attention to these polls cost her the election.
To the larger point, women don’t like not being liked. So Hillary, a woman (?), no doubt experienced extra feelings and butthurt from this. A fella, on the other hand, has the option of not being liked. Respect might be enough for him. Or he might just live as a hermit and not care. He has options.
As for Hillary, well she is truly unlikable. People sense it. They sense that it is all about her. They sense the lack of concrete principles. They sense the phony veneer that attempts to cover it this all up. Perhaps this veneer is the thing that puts it over the top with respect to dislike. If she presented herself as she truly was, then there might be some respect coming.
Of course, not all people sense this nature within Hillary. One wonders about these people…
