I hope Taylor Swift comes out for Joe and specially anti Trump-rethugs. I think she can motivate women and it would bother TSF so much he’d start attacking her.

Here's a start (Pew Research April 9 2024):

Changing Partisan Coalitions in a Politically Divided Nation
3. Partisanship by gender, sexual orientation, marital and parental status

Men continue to be more likely than women to associate with the Republican Party.

Partisan affiliation also varies by marital status, with gender differences in party identification apparent among married and unmarried voters.
[...]
Among all registered voters, men tilt to the GOP (52% of men identify with or lean toward the Republican Party, 46% to the Democratic Party).
By a similar margin, women tilt Democratic (51% Democratic, 44% Republican, including leaners).

The post you replied to refers to white women. You quoted numbers for all women.


Here is what the study said about white women.

Six-in-ten White men who are registered voters identify as Republicans or lean Republican, as do 53% of White women voters.

The balance of partisanship among White women voters has tilted toward the GOP in recent years, but it was more divided in 2017 and 2018.


Not only do more than half of white women support Republicans, but the percentage has increased over the last 20 years. And the percent that support Democrats has dropped by an even greater amount.

52 percent of white women voted for Trump in 2016


55 percent of white women in 2020

I am a white man and I call out how terrible 6/10 of my demo really are voting for Trump overall, white voters have, I don't trust white voters to make reasonable choices in 2024 either, Biden needs about 40 percent of that vote overall

I've recently been hearing right wing friends, men AND women, who were once loyal Republicans declare they cannot vote for Trump again and women in their 40s who've identified as Trump supporting Republicans refuse to vote for Republicans after Roe V Wade was killed. Women, even white suburban women are beyond pissed--they are ENRAGED! And so are many Republican men.

I know we can't always trust polls but I have seen several polls that show that the abortion issue is a way down the list of things that people are concerned about right now. But of course we shall see.

I talked 4 women in the family to register for the first time, this year. All of them will vote democrat.

I know it's only 4. But if everyone here did the same thing, imagine the landslide.
