Philadelphia [United States], Nov. 8 : Some Americans queuing up to vote for the next President of the United States don't seem to be too enthusiastic about Republican nominee Donald Trump being the next occupant of the White House.

Talking to ANI in Philadelphia on the sidelines of a rally addressed by President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton, Doura, a voter when asked whether America is ready for a woman president, said "Yes I think they are."

Replying to another question as to why it has taken America so long to elect a woman president if they do elect one tomorrow, she said, "I think because there are lot of white men who support her opponent, and they just have not let it happen yet."
