If we look at the polls and we can look at the most recent NBC news Wall Street Journal poll among. Women overall he has a 21%. Positive for any and a 70%. Negative rating centrum clearly at the problem not only. Whiff. Women at large but Republican women specifically as well. Humid in Kelly's great credit he tackled counts record in the very first debate. Which is that which is engendered a lot of ire on the part of candidate trump. China has said so many things throughout the campaign. That they it's almost sort of that sexism has been this low level hum it's always been a part of his identity and I think it wasn't until. You know really infected candidate's wife to their personal expenses the attacks on tankers as weight but it sort of entered. That like the main that blood stream of the case the campaign so Ted Cruz is actually talking about it. But people people have no few people known for a long time the child the sexist its just the fact that it's like suddenly. Become a part of the political Perry and. Read I think it was just one of the many parts of trump instead of the magnified part of trump him. Saying these things about women I would describe certainly it's accessed via. And more than now I just wanna say meg in Cali has done a great job this election cycle despite what from Francis said she has been a reporter she has been on this issue from day one. And whether trump people like it or not she is doing her job yet. Well I mean here at the country I think is an importance that he had half the country is women in fact more than half of voters will be women come November. Now I'm not the type of person who likes to get too much into the weeds at the end of the day the most important about. And I know right. The most important thing about. Winning elections simply getting the most votes so even if trump were to lose among women but he did exceedingly well among men he would still be able to win the election. Problem is that there's no real sign of that occurring in which to meet leads to a dead and that's why trump is trailing in the polls. By an average of about ten percentage points at this point and we count more than men and election right women as as as I mentioned are a large percentage of the Election Day electorate that men are. So if you're doing poorly among women in your not doing that well among men and that to me is a formula for losing. And that would make trump and booze. What a question. If I were a member of trump PR team I would be thinking away on that question of whether or not he can give it to be seen. I don't know more likable on women's issues more likable in general I think actually might be real it. They're really into it I mean I think part of it is one he will probably want to make ads near election Tenet and softened his rhetoric not call women in those or. Pigs or a helpful. Things like that. I also think that his daughter Ibaka will become. Of being player in the general election you are shown a willingness to sort of be out there I'm QB Joseph for her father. She's report she's very polished she doesn't say anything out of turn to the media. She just had a baby at the other day there's a certain appeal in she's she's a career woman she's a mother but putting her out there on the campaign trail. Implicit is how could a man. Who's not a little bits feminist raise a womanly that's right so she sort of she's just being held up there as this is what trump can't. Can bring to well. I don't know where it'll I think it'll be a pretty hard. But. Never say die.
