But the president might not get so lucky this time around. A wave of new polling shows that Trump is doing significantly worse among women than he was four years ago. According to an analysis from the New York Times, Trump trailed Clinton by 14 points among female voters heading into 2016. Today, he's behind expected Democratic nominee Joe Biden by 25 points.
"That's a huge falloff and a big problem," said Douglas Holtz-Eakin, president of the center-right American Action Forum.
Plus, a key demographic that helped seal Trump's electoral victory is starting to erode. Recent polling shows that white working-class women are moving away from the president, which could deliver a huge blow to his campaign in key swing states like Wisconsin and Michigan.
Trump's support from white working-class women has plunged 11 percentage points, according to a report from the Brookings Institution. Clinton lost this group to Trump by 27 points in 2016. Today, Biden is trailing the president by only 6 points.
Polls also show that Trump's handling of protests over the Minneapolis police killing of George Floyd is not sitting well with female voters. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released last week showed that seven out of 10 suburban women expressed sympathy toward the protesters and that six out of 10 disapproved of Trump's handling of the unrest.
"There is a large gender gap right now in American politics. I'm not saying Trump invented it, but he certainly widened it. I think he'll have cause to regret that," Galston said.

Today’s propaganda. Probably some truth in there about the Floyd nonsense based on what we’ve seen so far.
Just let all the ladies know that once Biden and the Looter Party gets rid of the police, it’s gonna be open season on them.
Guy breaks in to yo’ crib with lust on his brain?
Don’t call La Policia...they ain’t there anymore.
Think about that, Karen.
I am sure the women who owned small businesses that were looted will be lining up to vote for Biden....
I wish I could, I wish can, wish upon a star tonight.
It’s clear that there is about a 95% chance that Biden will win. In fact, he can’t lose. He will win the popular vote and be the President! Unless Trump colludes with the Russians and steals it from the rightful winner....
Ever single married or single White Woman I know (apart from family) are voting for Biden.
Every single one. The reason is what they see on TV about Trump and now this George Floyd thing.
“It’s TWUE...It’s TWUE!!!!”
Right...how many women shop at walmart and Target?
How many watched the looting and wondered what would have happened had they been there at the time?
Especially since women feel so much more secure without the police.
It’s not since the suburban women, seven out of ten, feel bad for the protesters.
The white suburban female vote has been killing us forever. They feel bad for all the little kids and all the black people but they won’t move near them or go over there and coach a team or volunteer. They will just vote to destroy their own family
Is Dopey Joe still paper trained?

That is rather disturbing if true. Rioting and a breakdown of law and order should be concerns that would drive women in the direction of wanting more security, especially since they, and their families are more vulnerable in such a scenario.
Every time I think Newsweek is dead I see it’s online presence is still barely alive. I think Don Lemon’s mother pays for a subscription.
To have a Newsweek leftist quote from a leftist NYT poll must mean something-——to Don Lemon’s mother.
Women will flock to who has the power and they believe BLM has the power. Did you notice all the white women in the protests?
It’s the pros/cons of going from a moderate “big tent party” to focusing solely on the 100% full support of a specific group or base
EXACTLY. Like GROPER/SNIFFER will tend to their needs and those of their young daughters. More DC SUPERCRIMINAL/PROPS Divide & Control. FAKE & WEEKNEWS.
No one tells me how to vote! And I’m voting to reelect President Trump!!!
