Most women have an unfavorable opinion of Donald Trump and that could ruin his chances of reaching the White House.
In the past, the Republican presidential candidate has made derogatory remarks on women addressing them as "pigs" and "slobs." He has gone on to call Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly "crazy" and also referred to former Miss Universe Alicia Machado as "Miss Housekeeping."
Trump's presidential chances received a jolt the moment white women settled on Hillary Clinton, political analyst Juan Williams writes for The Hill, pointing out that most polls showed Clinton taking over when it came to women voters.
Williams notes the Washington Post/Survey Monkey poll in early September had Clinton ahead by 23 points among white women with a college degree. Trump, however, was in the lead among white women without a college degree in mid-September.
The latest results have moved towards Clinton after Trump videos surfaced where he spoke vulgarly about women, says Williams. Among non-college-educated white women, both Clinton and Trump are at par winning (40 percent each), PRRI/Atlantic poll revealed.
Trump's failure among educated women and a massive fall among those without college education has led Clinton to an overall 33 point advantage among all women, the poll further showed.
However, Williams also points to a FiveThirtyEight average of national polls released in October which puts Clinton ahead by 15 point among women.
A CBS Battleground poll too conducted last week showed Clinton leading Trump by 8 points in Pennsylvania, 48 percent to 40 percent. What came as the icing on the cake was 53 percent of Pennsylvania women told pollsters that the tape released put Trump in the bad books.
Williams further goes on to speculate that the approach towards the Election Day is not going to be smooth. "This trajectory is likely to get worse for Trump as Election Day approaches — not least because several women have now come forward accusing him of various kinds of sexual misconduct and assault," he added.
