Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From News.yahoo.com: “Yahoo News/YouGov poll: It's not just 'suburban women.' Trump is doing worse with all white voters than in 2016.”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

From now until Election Day, Yahoo News and YouGov will deliver weekly reports on how sentiment is shifting among key groups of voters in the final phase of the 2020 presidential campaign.

At his rally Tuesday in Johnstown, Pa., President Trump briefly veered off script to beseech one particular — and pivotal — slice of the electorate.

“Suburban women, will you please like me?” Trump asked. “Please. Please. I saved your damn neighborhood, OK?”

The president’s tone was lightly mocking, although his reference to saving their “neighborhood” (from low-income housing and the people it would bring) continued his barely disguised appeal to prejudice.

The electoral concerns that provoked Trump’s plea, however, are very real. It’s no secret that the president has struggled with college-educated white women (often referred to as “suburban women,” the successors to “soccer moms”). According to exit polls, he lost them by 7 percentage points to Hillary Clinton in 2016, four years after Republican Mitt Romney won them by 6; in 2018 they broke for Democrats by 20 points, flipping the U.S. House of Representatives.
