Hillary Clinton was formerly regarded as the rising star of American politics and the Democratic Party and was projected as the first woman to be elected president of the United States.
Then, however, came 2016, when Clinton, whom many believed would be the next president, suffered a stunning electoral defeat at the hands of Donald Trump.
Since then, the electoral fortunes of this once-promising candidate have substantially deteriorated, and Hillary Clinton has become something of a laughingstock; even liberals have grown weary of her.
This week, we got yet another illustration of Clinton’s declining popularity.
The New York Post reported on Friday that the Hillary Clinton Facebook fan group Pantsuit Nation (named for Hillary Clinton’s distinctive fashion appearance) may disband in the coming days.
Pantsuit Nation, an underground feminist group founded by Libby Chamberlain that urged and recruited Clinton supporters to vote in the 2016 election, garnered headlines in the run-up to the election.
Pantsuit Nation was acquired by Supermajority, a feminist political organization, following Chamberlain’s departure in 2019.
At its peak, Pantsuit Nation had 4 million members, but that number has now decreased by approximately one-third to 2.8 million. Now, most likely as a result of the declining number of visitors, Supermajority has stated that they would be closing down the page.
“Earlier today, the organization that now manages the group announced that Pantsuit Nation will be shut down within the next two days,” Chamberlain announced on Facebook.
Naturally, many of its remaining members expressed shock at the announcement. Group moderator Itale Watie wrote, “None of us could ever imagine our exit like this, when we worked so hard to build a platform of truth and transparency. I know ya’ll want answers but as it is, none of us have them and we are doing our best to receive answers from the powers that be.”
For its part, Supermajority is explaining the decision by saying it is exploring other ways to mobilize the female vote. “Over the past several weeks and months, we have taken stock of our work, particularly focusing on our success in 2022, and developed a strategic approach to best position Supermajority to build women’s political power in 2023,” interim director Taylor Saditch said.
Obviously, the closure of this Facebook group is awful for Hillary Clinton, but this comment from Supermajority speaks to a larger storyline that makes matters worse for her: the 2016 female voting base is dwindling and deserting her.
In 2016, feminists flocked to Hillary Clinton as the first female president and a protector of women’s rights. Yet since then, feminism has seen significant shift.
