Trump’s problem with women.

I bet that shrivels Trump’s little mushroom.

Courtesy of Axios:

President Trump would lose the 2020 election against every woman mentioned as a possible Democratic opponent, according to an Axios poll by SurveyMonkey, aired first on HBO Sunday night.

Trump is underwater with women voters (64% of women view him unfavorably), and particularly among white suburban women — a group that will be critical in 2020. Look for Democrats to turn to their top 2020 female candidates after Tuesday’s election. A record number of women are running and a record number of women are expected to vote and win come Tuesday.

Trump vs the superstars: Even though they’re unlikely to run, both Michelle Obama and Oprah Winfrey would crush Trump if the election were held today, according to the poll conducted by SurveyMonkey.

And both women lead by double digits in favorability. Trump’s favorability is just 40% among registered voters, per the poll, compared to 62% for Obama and 55% for Winfrey.

Trump vs. the rising stars: More probable but lesser-known candidates — Democratic Sens. Kamala Harris (Calif.), Amy Klobuchar (Minn.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) — would all beat Trump, too.

But name recognition is a factor. A near-majority of registered voters said they didn’t know enough about Harris, Klobuchar or Gillibrand to be able to rate them as favorable or unfavorable.

Still, of these three women, Harris would beat Trump most handily — by a 10-point margin — if the election were held today. She polls well with African American and white suburban women, but not with #NeverHillary independent registered voters.
Klobuchar polls best with white suburban women, and would beat Trump by 9 points.

I kind of wish that they had not included Oprah and Michelle Obama as it takes away from the seriousness of this poll. 

I think the fact that Trump would likely lose against ANY female that was to run against him is newsworthy and fascinating. 

And yes, of course, I know that this is a poll taken before the Trump smear machine has had the opportunity to slander Klobuchar, Harris, and Gillibrand, but I also know that attacking these women could most certainly backfire in the age of #MeToo. 

I have said for a long time that I think the 2020 Democratic candidate will most likely be a woman and according to this poll that might be the smartest choice to ensure a victory.

    Trump supposedly went to Ohio to campaign for Republicans, which he did for one minute before mentally collapsing into a rant about his own greatness. Trump Ohio was like all of his other rallies, but worse as he is melting down before the eyes of an entire country.

    CON fronted then-candidate Donald Trump off-camera about his “birther” campaign against Barack Obama—and that he told her privately: “I know it’s bad. But it works.” ““Racism, in his mind, works. That’s what he told U$a,”
    “The final several weeks of this campaign has been about racism,” co-host Joe Scarborough said.
    “Donald Trump has made up a story about an invasion of brown people coming to the United States.”

    Gillibrand and Harris forever lost my vote over their railroading of Al Franken. I won’t vote for a candidate that denies due process in favor of mob rule. Both of them did. Especially Gillibrand. She is forever tainted. As a former State Atty Gen. Harris should have known better.

      Agreed. That’s the first thing I think of when I hear their names.

      Al Franken admitted what he did. So shove off

    I hope, Gillibrand will NOT run! She is hypocrite. Look at her immediately screaming for Al Franken to step down, but not all the others (including our Orange Abomination) that are accused of sexually harassing women. She gives everybody the benefit of a doubt, except the DEMOCRAT whose seat she took.

    “He once held a 10-inch knife to the throat of former Speaker John Boehner for “heckling” him. He also threatened to bite a fellow House Republican for objecting to one of his earmarks. In 2014, his spokesman couldn’t really deny that Young had killed someone. Just last February, he asked the Alaska Municipal League, “How many Jews were put in the ovens because they were unarmed?”
    “Young’s reminiscing perhaps isn’t as riveting as him putting a knife to Boehner’s throat, but it reveals a little something about the good ol’ boys club of Washington, where Young was an admittedly enthusiastic participant in objectifying staffers.

    Young is the longest-serving member of the House and is running against Alyse Galvin, an Independent who won the Democratic primary. According to Politico, polls indicate that Young is trailing Galvin by one point. But his throwaway comment about eyeing Wilson’s staffers every morning likely won’t influence anyone’s decision in the midterm elections tomorrow.”

    I just hope this blue wave doesn’t turn out to be russian propaganda.

      Me too, 5:53 PM. and no way in double hockeys will this country ever elect a woman president.
      Heck, it’s going to be hard enough to get mushroom dick out. I wouldn’t be surprised if he called martial law.
      Remember President Xi? I am no Eeyore, .but no way will he go quietly. He’s KING.

        Two words. Nikki Haley. If she were to decide to run for 2024, very likely 1st woman President.

    Anon at 7:55, maybe you won’t vote for a woman for president, but don’t count out the rest of us.
