But I thought all women hate The Donald?
The Left is surely in a pickle now, because we must #BelieveAllWomen.
The survey — conducted between December 9th and 11th — revealed that more GOP gals like Trump than do their guys. Men only favored Trump at a rate of 85%.
Again, how could it be?
In August, The New Yorker had this to say:
Just as he has made enemies of women, Muslims, Latinos, and African-Americans, Trump has calculated that it is to his political advantage to isolate skeptics in the press and declare them “enemies of the people.”
A month later, NBC tossed up some absurdity of its own:
We are living in the year 2018, and the GOP seems to have only just now discovered it has a woman problem. The blue wave of the midterms — substantially propelled by women’s organizing and woman candidates — has left the Republican party scrambling to shore up support among suburban, college-educated women, who seem to be fleeing the party en masse. Yet for a party that has thoroughly and obsessively defined itself based on white male needs and sensibilities for at least a decade, the call to change may be impossible to heed. Times are moving too fast for Republicans to catch up.
The blue wave — which wasn’t a wave, per se — was the result of “women’s organizing”? How does NBC know that?
I wonder what the Peacock makes of these women.
Why doesn’t the Left realize that women Republicans exist? They seem to refuse to report on any women who aren’t Democrats. The mainstream media even has a special name for organized female Democrats: “women’s groups.” What of Republican women who can (and d0) put together a robust meet-up?
Furthermore, the Dems rallying two years into a Republican presidency is par for the course, not evidence of a political epidemic. NBC’s article was titled “Misogyny has become central to the Republican mission — and the GOP is dying as a result; Women are recoiling from the GOP because of Trump, but the problem is not just Trump, and it never was.”
More on the poll — the women who approve of Trump broke down, in part, thusly: 89% approve of the President’s economic moves; 72% believe 2018 has been good for them on a personal level; 71% say the year’s been profitable for the nation.
Even among Democrats, 31% of Barbies believe 2018 was good to them; among Kens, that number jumps to 41%. [Related: here]
As for the Mueller investigation, 64% of Republican women expect the whole circus to come up empty-handed as it concerns criminal or impeachable acts by Trump. 57% of GOP men concur.
We have a tremendous problem in this country: seemingly, no matter where you look, only half of the news is being reported. Obviously, I’m not talking about places like RedState, where there’s a stated ideological tilt. I’m referring to all the “news” organizations who appear bent on convincing the nation that only half of it exists. At least half isn’t gonna fall for that, and professed news agencies should know better.
Furthermore, despite the apparent opinion of many on the Left, women are not lemmings. They would be, if every woman in America was a Democrat. Or Republican. The nation — including both sexes — is far more diverse than the media are willing to admit. And it’s the kind of diversity that’s actually worth something: diversity of thought. It’d be a boring, boring world, if not.
I’m Alex Parker, and that’s what I think.
