(Newser) – Blue-collar women are crazy for Hillary Clinton; so why are the candidate’s college-educated peers less thrilled? The LA Times looks at a demographic that’s cold on the Democratic  frontrunner. Many don’t like her politics, some feel she handled her husband's infidelity poorly, and others just don’t trust her.

One expert says feminists hold Clinton to a higher standard and are “just grumpy.” Clinton’s director of women’s outreach is confident they'll come around, saying, “They want to make sure you are not going to let them down.” But some already feel let down: Nora Ephron said she’s one among many "who don't trust her as far as you can spit."
