A billboard on Cty. Hwy. SS near Rice Lake says that “everyone matters” to the Republican Party of Barron County. Apparently that’s not true for the GOP president who continues to offend and lose his supporters.
Polling and focus group data released this summer show that a particular group of 2016 Donald Trump voters are having second thoughts. In November 2016, Wisconsin blue-collar white men and women favored Trump over Hillary Clinton by a large margin. Now, however, the margin of support from blue-collar white women has deteriorated to only 7 points. Losing these female voters could be the single most important reason Trump loses Wisconsin in 2020, where the margin is thought to be very close.
