July 25, 2019 - Blue-Collar White Women Back Trump, but Show Some Difference from Men

An analysis of working-class white women voters by The Atlantic describes Trump’s support among this group, which holds in the 2020 presidential contest, but also possible areas of degradation in their loyalty to the sitting president. Democratic pollster Stan Greenberg outlines focus group findings from Wisconsin working-class voters, noting greater “intolerance” from women of Trump’s rhetoric and behaviors, including those that they perceived as racist. However, other polls reveal similarities with white working-class men in women’s concerns about growing levels of immigration, foreign influence, and what they perceive as anti-white discrimination.
