Trump's Sexism Will Sink the GOP

In a sane campaign, run by professionals who don’t obviously require medication, a negative rating of 70 percent among women would be cause for concern.

Particularly since Gallup reveals the negative rating grew from an already high 58 percent last year.

Republican candidates typically have trouble with women, although in 2012 Mitt Romney was able to beat Barack Obama 53 to 46 percent among married women.

Romney also won white women, regardless of marital status, 56 to 42 percent.

Yet Romney was crushed in other demographics. Losing black women 96 to 4 percent, Hispanic women 76 to 24 percent and single women 67 to 33 percent.

And Romney also lost the election.

So by any rational standard the Trump campaign should be concerned about his sinking numbers among women and should be looking for an issue or topic he could address to start the process of reversing this fatal disapproval rating.

So what does Trump do just before the Indiana primary, where he has a chance to put Ted Cruz away once and for all? He proudly showcases an endorsement by a rapist.

Ted Cruz gets the endorsement of Mike Pence the governor of Indiana and Donald Trump gets the high sign from Mike Tyson who was convicted in Indiana.

Trump has a long history with Tyson. After his conviction in 1991, Fox News discovered Trump said Tyson was “railroaded.” Instead of hoping the female portion of the electorate misses that misstep, Trump tweets “All the tough guys endorse me” as he spread the word of Tyson’s support.

Ted Cruz responded, “I’ve got news for Donald Trump: Rapists are not tough guys.”

Female Republican officeholders are looking at Trump’s dumpster-fire of a campaign and urging him to pick a woman for his vice president.

The Hill reports Rep. Cynthia Lummis, R-Wyo., offered the idea at a Capitol Hill event hosted by the Heritage Foundation this week.

“I would suggest a woman, because some of the remarks he has made about women are not going to help him appeal to some of the 53 percent of the voting populace that are women,” Lummis said.

Assuming he could find a woman to tolerate him, what woman could possibly reverse his image slide? Mother Teresa is dead and Ronda Rousey is training for her comeback fight.

Trump has dug himself into a hole so deep; I doubt that even putting Oprah on the ticket would help.

It’s almost like Trump has a political death wish.

It’s too bad it looks like he’s going to take the Republican Party with him.
