From a TPM Prime member: "Even when Politifact breaks down their ratings for politicians, and Hillary and Obama are basically tied for most truthful, people still don't believe it. The issue is that the kinds of things that leaders do are gendered as male, so we like Joe Biden or Barack Obama for doing them. But when Hillary does them, it's seen as a violation of gender norms, and so we instinctively don't like it. It also doesn't help that their are separate rules the press has for covering Bill and Hillary than anyone else. She gets way more negative coverage, so of course the public will view her more negatively. I think her best bet is to emphasize competency, rather than likability. Trust can be emphasized by others, as it has been, but I don't think that's how you beat Donald Trump."
