Published

With less than four months to go before the 2020 presidential election, President Donald Trump’s poll numbers keep sliding downward — and one GOP consultant believes that even many of the women who backed him in 2016 are ready to jump ship.

Writing in The Bulwark, Longwell Partners CEO Sarah Longwell reveals that recent focus groups she’s conducted with women who backed Trump in 2016 show that the president has finally isolated many of them with his responses to the COVID-19 pandemic and the police killing of George Floyd.

Longwell, who on Twitter describes the president’s standing with women as in a “death spiral,” writes that many of these voters had still planned on voting for him because of the strength of the economy — but now the COVID-19 pandemic has taken that all away.

One 2016 Trump voter tells Longwell that she’s now decided to vote for former Vice President Joe Biden in the fall because “the stakes are too high now” and “it’s a matter of life and death.”

Trump’s Axios interview put his ‘willful ignorance’ on full display for the country: Ex-RNC official

Published

on

In a column for the conservative Bulwark, the former spokesperson for the Republican National Committee said the interview Donald Trump participated in with Jonathan Swan of Axios should be put to rest any doubts anyone might have had that the president is out of his depth.

Reacting to the interview done in conjunction with HBO, Tim Miller -- who is now an advisor to the Never Trumper Lincoln Project -- claimed the president's comments about the CoVID-19 pandemic and resulting U.S. death toll that has raced passed 150,000 is a sign "Trump is fundamentally incapable of recognizing the true nature of what he calls the 'invisible enemy.'"
