Clinton’s Gender Gap

Back in April, Pew Research published a poll which showed that a third of Democratic and Democratic-leaning independent voters would not vote for Hillary Clinton:

Poll

In September, the Washington Post ran a story showing that Clinton’s support among Democratic-leaning women had dropped to 42%, whereas a little over a week ago, Rasmussen Reports stated, “Men prefer Trump over Clinton by a 41% to 31% margin, while women prefer Clinton by a similar 42% to 31% margin.”

Why this lack of enthusiasm from women for the Democratic front-runner? The opportunity to vote for the first female president doesn’t, so far, seem to be providing very encouraging poll numbers.

In a just-published interview by The New York Times Magazine, Debbie Wasserman Schultz was asked, “Do you notice a difference between young women and women our age in their excitement about Hillary Clinton? Is there a generational divide?” Schultz replied, “Here’s what I see: a complacency among the generation of young women whose entire lives have been lived after Roe v. Wade was decided.” That’s it! With respect to women, it’s not their concerns about the economy, education, crime, infrastructure, terrorism, the stock market, etc.; it’s complacency over the right to kill their babies. If only women would see that abortion matters more than anything else, Clinton’s poll numbers would skyrocket! I would call that incredible, but stuff like that has been standard fare from the Democratic playmakers for some time.
