White Women Shift Dramatically From GOP To Democratic Party

In the Presidential election in 2016, white women (who made up 36% of all voters in 2016) preferred Trump over Clinton by 9 percentage points. Now, they favor Democrats over Republicans by 12 percentage points. Such a big shift in preferences in such a large demographic could have big consequences in the 2018 mid-term elections for Congress this year.

It isn't hard to imagine that Trump's misogyny and GOP backing for pedophile Roy Moore in the vacancy election held in 2017 in Alabama had a lot to do with this rapid shift in party affiliation.
