That’s the intriguing question asked by a New York University team. Their project, called Her Opponent, was to stage a debate using the words and gestures of the candidates, but portrayed by people of opposite sexes. They expected to see that Trump’s behavior would not have been tolerated in a woman. What they learned was the exact opposite. After a discussion with audience members, the director said, “We heard a lot of ‘now I understand how this happened’—meaning how Trump won the election.” The female version of Trump turned out to be very likable, while the male version of Clinton was described as “very punchable.”

Watch part of the rehearsal. “Dr. Bill Conerly is the consultant who connects the dots between the economy and business decisions. He holds a Ph.D. in economics from Duke University and was formerly Senior Vice President at First Interstate Bank. Dr. Conerly is author of Businomics: From the Headlines to Your Bottomline—How to Profit in Any Economic Cycle (, which provides business leaders with a framework for understanding current economic news. He is co-author of Thinking Economics, a multi-media high school economics curriculum used in 24 states.”
