Skip to comments.Women Were Supposed to Stop Trump From Getting Elected in 2016 — This Time It Might Actually Happen
Posted on 06/10/2020 9:11:16 AM PDT by Stravinsky
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.

I’m one female who did NOT vote for President Trump in 16.
AND I CANNOT WAIT TO GET THERE SO I CAN PROUDLY VOTE FOR HIM THIS TIME.
Excellent point. Why do they do it?
Is it going to win them over to say dopey, moderate mush like Kasich or Jeb Bush? So they won't sound like a harsh name caller? What about policy implementation and improvements in America by Trump? So his harsh tweets are a turnoff, along with 24/7 media propaganda? Is that why?
One thing that I have seen that the GOP absolutely must combat is the witch hunt type mass hysteria that has resulted in an internet inspired rush to judgment. They do not own social media, and if the election is conducted according to the rules of internet mob rule they will lose badly. I have seen women and men that I know just buy into groupthink and I think that is the prevailing habit, Im afraid.
Lucky for the GOP the most famous example of mass hysteria are the witch hunts, which most of us know could have happened to any woman.
will vote for Trump....
God bless you.
Easy being a lefty emotional soccer mom voter until looters are on. Your doorstep and the cops aren’t coming.
well this set of boobs is voting for Mr. Trump - AGAIN!
Biden must be in serious trouble that they are trying to suppress our enthusiasm.
The FACT is that support for Trump has only INCREASED. Those who hesitated or were borderline are now on his side. There are less Never-Trumpers also.
God bless you.
And you, also...
“”According to an analysis from the New York Times,””
Let me know when we can stop laughing!!!
haha too late, all karens are already on their knees, ready to take whatever comes their way
I am 76 years old, for much of my life I thought that the founders were cruel men who refused to let women vote so that they could keep them repressed. Now I am convinced that the downfall of this nation was assured when women were granted the vote. It was accelerated when the voting age was dropped to eighteen, it may be true that most who are under 21 don’t vote but they should not have the option. It demeans the whole voting concept. I signed up for the US Navy just before my eighteenth birthday but I did not think I should have a vote before my twenty first.
Trump will get a far larger percent of the womens vote in 2020 than he did in 2016.
If it does women will be the ones hurt when layoffs come due to tax increases, when sniffing, feeling, touching becomes an accepted thing, when police budgets are reduced and there is no one available when you need a cop.
Women need to stop being emotional voters.
A few days ago there was a solidarity protest at a local park in a nearby bedroom community. It appeared to be mostly soccer moms and kids. I doubt it dawned on the soccer moms their lifestyle is in the crosshairs of the violent left. They wouldn't know if they just watch and listen to MSM...
Good luck with all that.
“”Now I am convinced that the downfall of this nation was assured when women were granted the vote””
This woman says, “I agree”! Wish we could prevent them from running for office - ANY OFFICE! They are dangerous to the country - just look at Congress!!!
Its weaponized mass hysteria driven by social media.
Biden was a gaff machine a decade ago, and that should take care of him, especially if he picks Harris. Trump has one thing going for him in all the harassment and that is that any woman who has ever dealt with male on female bullying will recognize the tactics though it will need to be framed right. By now any woman on Trumps staff should be able to help with that.
Something absolutely positively does need to be done about the weaponized mass hysteria. Either that or else there needs to be a fad that everyone buys into that decrees a social media diet of at least 30 days and preferably more.
I checked twitters of a couple lib female kooks I know from previous jobs.
They almost need IVs just to stand up, mega bleeding hearts.
The goal of the left is to reduce anything traditional and try to convince white women that, like blacks, it is the white male who has suppressed them. Useful idiots like Joe Biden are just that.
