At a campaign rally in Lansing, Michigan, claiming he was “defending Suburbia”, the president ched himself as a candidate for suburban female voters because he was “taking your children back to school” and “getting your husband – they want to go back to work.” We’re taking your husbands back to work. “
While Trump focused on “husbands” during a speech in Michigan on Tuesday, the coronavirus epidemic has had a much bigger impact on women in the workplace.
The International Monetary Fund warned in July that the epidemic recession hurts women more than men and that job losses during the economic downturn are happening in areas of the economy where women are disproportionately represented. The annual workplace report by McKinsey & Co. and LININ.org showed women that they were considering reducing their careers or leaving the workplace altogether, due to the epidemic that plagued working mothers.
Trump is very vague among women voters and the polls show that the president consistently lags behind Democratic nominee Joe Biden in opinion polls. She has made several attempts to challenge female voters in recent weeks – at one point even saying, “Suburban women, would you like me?” During campaign rallies – but often used sexist and vulgar language when referring to women, especially their political opponents such as Hillary Clinton, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democratic Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris.
The president has in recent months openly called for support for what he calls “America’s suburban housewives.”
Trump said in Nevada earlier this month, “Women come to me, I don’t like the women they say – they really do a lot like me,” Trump said in Nevada earlier this month. “Suburban women, please vote for me. I’m defending your home. I’m saving your community. I keep your crime down.”
Trump has sought to close his distance with women, focusing specifically on the suburbs, believing that people living outside of America’s largest cities, who broke away from Republicans in the medium term two years ago, could return with a futile message of safety and security. .
But Trump’s message has been delivered at a time when he is coding communications appeals, claiming that efforts to increase affordable housing in the suburbs are a threat to survival.
“If (Biden) comes to run this country and runs it the way they want to run it, our suburbs will run, our suburbs will run,” Trump said in his first presidential debate. “And problems like you.” See what you’ve never seen. “
With just a few days to go before the presidential election, it is unclear what effect Trump’s efforts will have on the enormous impact of the gender gap that has hampered his chances of re-election.
White women in particular seem to be moving away from Trump in the draw. Vermont Sen. CNN took over after Bernie Sanders left the race in April. A look at the poll reveals that Biden White has advanced an average of 13 points among female registered voters.
Trump gained an average of 5 points among white women in 2016 after Sanders withdrew from that race.
This means that Biden is doing 18 points better among white women than Hillary Clinton in CNN’s pre-election election.
