If there is any demographic Trump doesn’t seem able to touch at all, it’s college-educated women. While women gave the GOP an edge in the 2010 midterm elections, an edge President Obama said contributed to the “shellacking” of the Democratic candidates, polls of women with college degrees show they now favor Democrats by an astounding 32 points.
Trump doesn’t poll well with women as a whole, as 58 percent disapprove of his job performance, and 64 percent of all college graduates agree. That disapproval rating with college-educated women only increased after Trump appointed an alleged attempted rapist, Brett Kavanaugh, to the Supreme Court.
Headed into the midterm elections, these numbers don’t look any better for the GOP.
‘Women and men have diverged in their reactions to Trump across virtually all of those other categories, like education and race. Over the past month in Gallup’s daily tracking poll, Trump drew much higher approval ratings from men than women. That was true among whites with a college degree, whites without a college degree, Hispanics, African Americans, and members of other racial groups, according to figures Gallup provided to The Atlantic.’
Exit polls in 2016 showed that Trump got a whopping total of nine percent of the votes of black women across all education levels, and support has since dropped.
After the college-educated women of the country finished laughing at Trump’s tweet, they collectively let him know their votes would not be cast for him or for any member of the Republican party anytime soon. Read some of their comments below:
