The Biggest Blunder of the 2016 Campaign
American Thinker ^ | October 11, 2016 | Steve McCann

Many have tried to dismiss the recently released tapes of Donald Trump discussing women in extraordinarily vile terms as simply good old boy locker room banter claiming they are immaterial and will not impact on their vote. Perhaps to his diehard supporters they will not but that is not the target audience. The target audience is the women’s vote, in particular suburban white women, who will, in the end determine the winner of the presidential election.

In 1920 American women were, for the first time, able to vote for president in all the states of the union. The female vote accounted for 30% of the total votes cast in that election. The women’s vote gradually increased but remained below the 50% threshold until the election of 1964 when nearly 51% of the voting electorate were women. The female vote has exceeded the male vote ever since.

In fact, women have been the determining factor in five of the last six presidential elections. A phenomenon often referred to as the “Gender Gap” reflects the fact that women over the past 24 years tend to prefer the Democratic nominee and have created a voting gap from three to thirteen percentage points in favor of any Democratic Party nominee. In 2008 McCain won just 43% of the women’s vote compared to 56% for Barack Obama, the worst result for a Republican to date. This long-term trend, in combination with a much higher turnout among female voters adds a significant layer of difficulty for any Republican not named Ronald Reagan (who won 58% of the women’s vote in the 1984 landslide to win the presidency).

The female vs male turnout as a percent of the overall votes cast during the past five presidential elections are as follows:

Are we supposed to cry, gnash our teeth, and say “woe is me” over this article?

Maybe there’s a strategy in posting these things but i’ll be damned if i know what it is.

Hillary destroyed women’s lives and there’s so much to report from wikileaks that this just takes up space.

I disagree with the author’s contention that any other Republican nominee could have beaten her easily.

I know she is a deeply flawed and disliked candidate, but the Clinton + Media coalition is powerful as we can see and would have taken practically anyone down, especially the GOPe favorite, Jeb.

Listen to the tape, not the Ministry of Propaganda spin on it.

It’s nothing.

We have to hope Trump also makes people to think twice about her. If not for him, stay home or vote 3rd. If people get disgusted and say I can’t vote for either one of them, it could impact the race.

All that stuff the author alludes to from Trump’s TV career: who was watching that stuff, anyway??? It wasn’t me. Was it women???

The biggest blunder was Ryan becoming Speaker. A disaster.

Comments remind me why I unbookmarked American Thinker. Losers, haters and undisciplined though processes. Article is a hodgepodge of misinformation, opinion masquerading as fact and trolling.

If I could have advised Trump, I would have dug up 15 quotes from Hillary and Bill for Trump to memorize. They would have been quotes from her (exact quotes) when she was defending her husband from inappropriate behavior (or any behavior). I would have had Trump memorize them and be able to recall every one of them from memory. Then, after the initial apology and acknowledgement, I would have advise that he use the quote that most closely and generally provides a response. Even if the context is skewed or awkward. But never let on that he is actually quoting Hillary or Bill. Let the media dig and figure it out for themselves. They love to “discover” things and announce how smart they are. They would start reporting what Hillary once said about sexually aggressive behavior.

After a few days, just to drive home the point, he would have to work in, “What difference does it make, at this point, anyway?” Then drop the mic and walk off.

The republican elites are still ticked off at the little people for going against what they told us to do. Usually we listen to them and take the crap they dish out so well: Dole, McCain, Romney.

I’ll add GHWB and GWB as well, even though they won, because they may as well have been democrats.

No one has taken Trump down! Isn’t this the same crap we saw in the primaries? We’re still out here, we’re still pissed, and we’re still voting.

Many women don’t pick a President, they pick a husband.Judging by the divorce rate, they don’t pick husbands very well either.

Every other ‘republican’ candidate would have rolled over and played dead immediately on nomination. Have to ‘be above the fray’ dontcha know. The GOPe has brought the Republican Party to the brink of extinction. An R House and Senate has DONE NOTHING to stop or reverse the Progressive Agenda. There is no reason to vote for the turncoats in the Republican Party. Ever again.

If “women” want to vote for this Demon then what is there to do about.

These articles are useless. Actually, less than useless.

Thanks for posting.
