Haley Campaign Press Release - New York Post: Donald Trump Has a Woman Problem: Too Many of Them Just Won't Vote For Him

Here's the least surprising news of the decade: Donald Trump has a woman problem.

No, I'm not referring to his sordid personal life.

I mean the women who vote.

Here are the facts.

In a Quinnipiac poll released this week, Trump had the support of just 36% of women.

That's down five points in a single month.

Joe Biden's favorability ratings are higher.

That's saying something.

Where'd the rest go?

You guessed it: Joe Biden.

A stunning 58% of women are ready to vote for him.

And while Trump is losing ladies, Biden is gaining them, month over month.

The gender gap is higher than it's ever been.

The Quinnipiac pollster had the most understated line of the year: "The gender demographic tells a story to keep an eye on."

No kidding.

Every Republican should be looking at these numbers and freaking out.

You know what happens when a Republican presidential candidate loses that many women?

They lose the election.

End of story.

And a margin that big means a big loss.

The kind of loss that sinks down-ballot races, from the House to the Senate to your local school board.

The question is why. Why do so many women dislike Donald Trump so much?

Those on the left can be expected to back Biden, of course, if for no other reason than abortion.

But many independent and even Republican women will run from him, too.

I'm a proud Republican — and a good case study.

I have three daughters. I've spent countless hours trying to raise them right.

You know what I've never tolerated?

Rudeness, lewdness and disrespect.

I've told them never to be like Donald Trump or to allow men to treat them like Donald Trump would treat them.

Trump thinks he's a macho man, but in fact, he's a mean girl: He bullies.

He lies.

He throws temper tantrums.

He trash-talks.

He spends every moment either building up himself, tearing others down, or both at the same time.

The thing about mean girls is they sow chaos everywhere they go.

Donald Trump's no different.

He's always breaking, never fixing.

But after four years of him and four years of Joe Biden, America is already broken enough.

We need a president who can put the pieces back together.

The only way to do that is to earn the trust of enough women to win the election.

Instead, Trump has chased away the very suburban women needed to swing the race.

You know, the ones who used to vote solid Republican.

We're talking women who want safe streets, good schools, reasonable prices and a booming economy for themselves and their children.

They'll never get that under Joe Biden.

But they dislike Trump so much, they'll still choose Biden over him.

Or vote for neither.

We need someone who can beat Joe Biden and bring America back.

Someone who can win over women.

That's why it makes sense to look to the only woman in the race: Nikki Haley.

Unlike our former president, Haley is a case study in class.

She fought the old boys club as governor of South Carolina and as ambassador to the United Nations.

She's stuck to her conservative principles while expanding the tent.

The polls prove it.

While Trump has been running close Biden, Nikki Haley has enjoyed large leads over him.

A CNN poll just put her a whopping 13 points ahead of Biden in a head-to-head match up.

She dominates with suburban women.

Fact is, despite what the media says, the race for the Republican nomination is far from over.

There's still time for the party faithful to realize that Donald Trump has a woman problem that can't be solved.

In fact, he has another woman problem: Nikki Haley isn't backing down.
