Polls for 2016 presidential election: Donald Trump will not get support of majority American womenÂ
Donald Trump may be galloping ahead of his adversaries in the Republican primary elections. Nonetheless even if he gets the nomination, it will be very hard for him to convince Americans to vote for him.
Many polls suggest that he has lower chance of winning the Presidential elections in November against Hillary Clinton even compared to Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio, who suspended his campaign after losing Florida primary. Now there are more reasons for the Republican establishment to be wary of the billionaire businessman as women are overwhelmingly opposed to him.
Trump has beaten his opponents overwhelmingly thus far in the Republican primaries 2016. This past Tuesday he won as many as 4 states out of the 5 that held primaries. The only state where he lost, the winner was Gov. John Kasich, the very popular governor of the state. Nonetheless his win in primaries will be a death-knell for the Republican Party as they will lose elections against Hillary Clinton in November.
He has annoyed many groups of population. But the one section of the population that he has particularly antagonized is women across the US. A latest poll suggests that half of U.S. women say they have a “very unfavorable” view of the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination.
According to the latest Reuters/Ipsos polling more than 50 percent of the women said that they donâ€™t have favorable view of him. This is up from the 40 percent who felt that way in October. The survey was taken from March 1-15, and included 5,400 respondents. The rise in anti-Trump sentiment among women could pose a problem for the New York billionaire in his quest for the White House. Women form just over half of the U.S. population, and they have turned out at higher rates than men in every election since 1996, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
In the meantime Republican establishment is coming together to oppose him and have a contested convention in Cleveland. Trump has warned there will be riots if the grassroots will is subverted. Not since the Democratic convention in Chicago in 1968 held amid the civil rights unrest has there been the prospect of violence at an American political jamboree that are usually choreographed coronations underscored by civility and consensus.
We all know that the former House Speaker John Boehner has endorsed his successor Paul Ryan as the GOP presidential nominee at the party convention if Trump arrives there short of the 1237 delegates he needs. “If we don’t have a nominee who can win on the first ballot (at the convention), I’m for none of the above,” Boehner said at an industry conference in Florida on Tuesday, adding,. “They all had a chance to win. None of them won. I’m for Paul Ryan to be our nominee.” The ballot rounds refers to a seldom invoked provision at conventions where generally a candidate arrives with so much party and delegational support that his nomination is a formality
