WASHINGTON — President Trump’s storied grip on the white working class is weakening among women, threatening both his reelection prospects and his party’s efforts to improve its standing with female voters. While working-class men remain among Trump’s most loyal backers, defections among their wives, sisters and daughters are a big part of the president’s recent slide in opinion polls. That gives Democrat Joe Biden a shot at winning a swath of female voters that have long favored the GOP. White working-class women heavily favored Trump in 2016. But recent polls show they are being driven away by his combative style, his erratic handling of the coronavirus crisis and his effort to quickly reopen the economy despite health risks.
Working-class white women are turning on Trump

For their own mental and physical safety, they should never tell that to their husbands. Quite a few white male Trump voters are filled with rage. They carry their hate like a badge of honor.
They’re bullies, have arsenals of guns, plus many of them physically and mentally abuse their wives. They’re not only sexist, they’re extremely homophobic, and certainly racist. Sum total, they’re loose cannons, eagerly waiting to explode.

If those numbers hold, Brookings Institution scholar William Galston calculated it could cut two percentage points from Trump’s popular vote total and likely sink his reelection hopes.
“It took a near-miracle for him to win the electoral college with only 46% of the popular vote in 2016,” said Galston, who has advised six Democratic presidential campaigns. “With 44% of the vote, it would not be possible.”
Surveys in some battleground states have found Biden not just slashing Trump’s lead among working-class white women but overtaking him. In Wisconsin, where Trump beat Clinton among white women without college degrees by a 16-point margin, Marquette University Law School polling has found the president trailing Biden in eight of the nine polls conducted since August 2019.

Anyone making less than $500,000 a year who thinks Trump is for them is pure idiocy.
End of story.

This is good news for the rust belt.
Maybe they will give Democrats a chance to bring back industry and prosperity to the people and not to the 1%.

Are Karens working class?

R12, you’re absolutely correct. There are two types of Republicans. The wealthy vote for their own economic interest, and those of the poor and middle class who vote AGAINST their own economic interest.

You know he looks at these women and he thinks to himself "She's a 2, she's a 4, she's a 3...I don't want to fuck them so they have no value to me. Hell, I could tell them that to their faces, and they'd still vote for me."

R1, comments like that are why the voted for Trump in 2016. Y'all realize that most of these Karens in these videos are big city liberal types. A handful might be republican, most of them are just entitled liberal yoga pants wearing types not working class women. Look at the locations, look at their occupations in most of posted videos. Those broads did not vote Trump in 2016.

r20, ppl falsely politicizing things is why we are in this mess. Those Karens might be racists but they sure aren't trumpsters.

Just vote, and encourage everyone you know to vote. For every five anti-Trump votes, only one will make it through the Republican shredder.

Those Karens are all deplorables. They even say they are in the videos.

According to the article, they are former deplorables now.
Reformed is a better word.
