The GOP Tried to Fix its Woman Problem After 2012. It Failed Miserably.

Laura Bassett, Huffington Post – October 11, 2016
When Barack Obama defeated Mitt Romney by double digits among women in 2012, it seemed as if the GOP’s “woman problem” had hit its nadir. It all added up to calamity for the Republican Party. Female voters soundly rejected Romney, Akin and other male GOP candidates in 2012.

Carey Purcell, Politico – October 4, 2016

What’s happening among these women? I spoke to a number of educated GOP women who say they’re voting for Hillary, seeking to find out not just what drove their decision, but what kind of impact it is having on their lives. What I found was that Trump is splitting Republican households, with wives canceling out their husbands’ votes for the GOP; many will pull the lever for Hillary despite strong resistance and flat-out opposition from their spouses, families and communities. And many are even keeping their decision a secret from those closest to them.

White Women in Charlotte Suburbs Were Reliably Republican. Then Came Trump.

Tim Funk, Charlotte Observer – September 4, 2016

If Republican Trump expects to carry swing states such as North Carolina, he’ll need voters like Roberts – white suburban women who have a history of voting for GOP candidates. Four years ago, then-Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney won the national white female vote by 14 points, according to exit polls.
