The potentially devastating challenge for Trump is the increasing number of strong women entering the Democratic field in 2020 to unseat him. While Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016, this new group of women — one of whom could ultimately win the nomination — pose a significant threat to his re-election prospects, in part by drawing female voters to their side.
But it’s not just about what Trump has said or done. It’s also about what these female candidates are saying and doing.
Trump is now confronted with a gang of women who are all gunning for him. And if he responds in usual Trump fashion, with his no-holds-barred attacks, he could drive away more female voters than he did in the 2018 midterms. That could potentially not only be devastating for Trump, but for many Republicans on the 2020 ballot.
