Are Sexism and Racism the Reasons that Hillary Clinton Is Not President of the U. S.?

(1) I cannot help but question if a reason that so many white men in the Rust Belt (Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin) voted for Donald Trump rather than Hillary Clinton was as much because of their not wanting a female president who carries leadership qualities (which, of course, is sexism or misogyny) as with their lack of jobs in that part of the country.

I have not seen many articles on this possibility. I think that this possibility should be questioned. We never overcome sexism or racism unless we question deeply, seeking as many multi-dimensional aspects of truth, as possible. We should, also, consider that BOTH lack of jobs and sexism could have affected the outcome of the voting patterns in these particular states (not simply one or the other), which changed the outcome of the presidential election.  Hillary Clinton received the most popular votes in this nation; but Donald Trump will be president only because of the Electoral College votes.  See #2 below.
