Skip to comments.Women Were Supposed to Stop Trump From Getting Elected in 2016 — This Time It Might Actually Happen

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.

Female voters are security motivated, this has been known for decades. Theres a distinction between sympathy for George Floyd and supporting the violence and destruction of property that has occurred though, purportedly under his name. It all depends upon just how the poll questions were framed. I suspect they got the answer they wanted, not necessarily an accurate read upon sentiment.
Disturbing but it only confirms to me the actions that are going to be taken in the next month.
Biden still has to pick his veep before things can get rolling. Plus Hillary was hampered by Comey popping up every time you turned around. Whether Trump wants to admit it or not, that needs to be taken into account. Biden probably wont wear well, and Harris seems to be a blind spot for the rich old men that wont be shared by the average woman who will fail to see sunshine and roses coming out of her a**.
Well see, but I had a psych class once that said that people dont engage in coerced behavior when nobody is looking, like in a voting booth.
Polls are all manipulations.
They obviously are not true. Any barely observant dolt can see that.
Women love Biden.
Its the reason why Democrats are putting a lid on all the talk of defunding police, but if the RATs win everything in November then worrying about them defunding police will be the least of our concerns!
I can’t imagine Trump losing, but I do have a question: What happens if he does?
Asking for a friend.
Perish the thought. Not good.
Never believe anything from a “news” source worth only $1.
Here is why that is pure BS.
Although I have no idea how women will vote in Nov I do know one thing and that is the majority of women do NOT like violence and DO admire strength and decisiveness in dealing with something like this.
Trumps advocating and then utilizing the NG (with success) will bode him well. AS much as women admire strength in a man they despise weakness and are sickened when they see a man grovel. I have a wife and a daughter and they are who mentioned this (groveling). Neither one of them are particularly political but when I showed them what Drew Brees had said about the Flag and then his reaction after being criticized both agreed it was sickening and actually felt embarrassment for him and wondered how he could live with himself with that sort of public humiliation.
Anyway, Trump exceeded projections for women votes in 2016 and will do so again if he plays up the security/law and order part of his platform.
Yes, women love anarchy, it makes them feel safe.
The problem is that it really is possible. Just as the Russian revolution prevailing was, or the Nazi party in Germany. This can really happen and has in the past.
But what if it does.
And yet married white women as a demographic voted for Trump last time
It's all because the news is 24/7 "Trump Hates Women. Trump is a pig"
Just saying it over and over again is making it true for your average low information voter.
Really scary stuff.
The US has a strong middle class and a 2nd amendment.
If he wins then we take it and work to improve ourselves, our family, our business, our church, our community, and we work local and we work for the next time.
Never give up. Never surrender.
Or not. We'll find out in November.
Yep. We’ve hit Peak Trump. It’s time for real Americans to give up and let Antifa take power. What could go wrong?
First off, women are ALWAYS supposed to deliver victory to Democrats. Does anyone think that reducing police protection will appeal to women? RERALLY?
Next here are some numbers Joey Fingers has to deal with:
https://www.mediaite.com/news/former-nbc-executive-sounds-alarm-on-bidens-young-voter-problem-he-hasnt-inspired-them-at-all/ This link shows a 35 point enthusiasm gap between Trump voters and Biden voters.
Twenty six percent of African American voters highly approve of Trump.
On Twitter alone Trump has 81 million follows and Biden has 6.1 million. The numbers don’t lie.
