A new Cosmopolitan/Morning Consult survey of nearly 3,000 registered voters shows that young women aren’t buying it. Only 28 percent of women ages 18 to 34 said they had a favorable view of Ivanka Trump, while 42 percent had an unfavorable view.

Poll: Women Less Likely to Support Trump, but Many Are Undecided

Fawn Johnson, Morning Consult – July 26, 2016

Hillary Clinton and her surrogates hope to make a powerful case for women voters here at the Democratic National Convention this week. There is an opportunity to do so. Morning Consult’s polling shows that women, so far, have proven more reluctant to support Donald Trump than men.

Trump: Making Feminism Great Again

Georgea Kovanis, Detroit Free Press – July 24, 2016

A Trump presidency, said Williams and several other women with whom I’ve spoken recently, would be disastrous for women; the very thought of Trump in the Oval Office is infuriating. Which is why I think his candidacy is turning out to be such a good thing.

But after two hours passed, I began to feel less like a reporter and more like a desperate pick-up artist on the prowl. I waited outside the women’s bathroom, eyeing up women who looked my age, and tried to approach females who were alone or idle. I perfected my “pick-up line,” so to speak: “Hi, I’m a reporter interested in talking to young Republican women about the election. Would you be willing to talk to me?” I even cornered older women, practically crying, “Help me find the Youngs!” One woman I interviewed, a delegate from Texas, actually laughed and wished me luck finding anyone who was not a 50-year-old man. Young women at the RNC, it felt, were an endangered species.
