On average, women in the American workforce are paid 83 cents for every dollar a man makes. Many people in the United States don’t think this should be the case. Rather, most people have said they support equal pay — includingPresident-elect Donald Trump and some of his compatriots in the Republican Party.

The pollsters at American Women, the affiliated research arm of EMILY’s List, looked at this critical demographic to assess their concerns and priorities in the upcoming election. The organization surveyed 800 voters, breaking the sample size down by gender (376 men, 424 women) and then further analyzing millennial women (152), women of color (121), and independent women (125).

In short, child care is one of the biggest expenditures facing American families. As a result Ivanka Trump’s surprisingly liberal message and policy priorities might very well draw some reluctant Republican women into the fold. But ultimately it is unlikely that her efforts alone will be sufficient to overcome her father’s challenges with women voters.

One of the major battlegrounds of the 2016 presidential election is Twitter, with both candidates slugging it out using 140 characters or fewer. Heather Evans, Kayla Brown, and Tiffany Wimberly have been studying both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s tweets. They find that, in line with findings from previous studies on how women candidates tweet, in June Clinton out tweeted the Republican nominee, attacked him more often than he did her, and tweeted about political issues far more often.

In the 2012 presidential election women made up the majority of voters — 53 percent women to 47 percent men. That trend has been in place for decades, with women casting more votes than men in every presidential election since 1964, according to the Center for American Women and Politics. When it comes to what female voters want, Jennifer Lawless, director of the Women and Politics Institute at American University, they want the same kinds of things that male voters want.

The Republican primary hasn’t had many easy openings for a candidate to separate himself and stand alone on a policy issue. Ted Cruz found one earlier this month: the draft.

Be clear: HRC has faced and continues to face extreme sexism. The misogyny is palpable. If she were a man, she would be finishing her second term and prepping for the Supreme Court by now. She can run with the big dogs and win because women know how to get it done. What exactly she’ll get done, however, is up for debate.
