Have women washed their hands of President Trump? There’s certainly no shortage of people who would like to think so and are speculating on how this will affect the presidential election next year.
A recent Associated Press story was headlined “Suburban women recoil as Trump dives into racial politics.”
have pointed to a decline in the number of women – specifically
suburban women –turning out to vote in the 2018 elections.
Meanwhile, the left keeps pushing a narrative that Republicans are perversely intent on waging a “war on women.”
But while the media obsess over presidential tweets and partisan
sniping, most Americans understand that elections are about ideas, not
political gamesmanship. And they certainly understand that waging war on
more than half the electorate is an act of political suicide that no
party should pursue.
those on the left are trying to sway these women to swing over to the
Democrats, or at least to sit out the 2020 elections. That means it’s up
to conservatives to win these women over with ideas and ensure they
turn out in 2020.
Why the focus on female voters, then? In 2016, suburban women formed a key element of the Trump coalition. Many of these women are swing voters, and many will be unlikely to vote along party lines in 2020.
