We’ve all heard it: Suburban women cannot tolerate the President’s blunt and sometimes caustic rhetoric and are fleeing the GOP in advance of the 2020 elections. But here’s a caution for us all: Conservatives are preached to by the Media Mob, who consistently tell us their version of the truth on all Trump matters. They are the source of the suburban women rush to turn on the President. But is what we are being told the truth?
It should come as no surprise to any that this news is not news at all. Facts do not bear this out.
A new report showed that President Donald Trump is seeing a surge in donations from women and is tops in receiving significant contributions from suburban women—more than any Democrat candidate.
Despite the narrative from mainstream media claiming that suburban women are “fleeing the Trump party,” a study from OpenSecrets.org, part of the Center for Responsive Politics, shows the sharp contrast. President Trump has the most big-dollar suburban women donors, 10,534, and has received the most from them with more than $8 million—the most significant amount compared with his Democratic rivals.
“Suburban women, who power a significant electoral battleground, are a key demographic for 2020,” reads the study. “The suburbs are more important as the political divide between Republicans and Democrats grows starker.”
“Trump has received more itemized large-dollar contributions from women than a majority of the Democratic candidates—$15 million since he started fundraising the day after his inauguration,” it adds.
Even some conservative show hosts have noted the alleged support loss of Trump female support. But statistics do not bear that out.
Media reports following Trump’s defeat of Hillary Clinton in 2016 pointed to the apparent Clinton loss of support from women as a significant factor in the election outcome. The media then could not accept that with all of Mr. Clinton’s “dirty laundry” from his past, women could still support him as president. CNN found a group of southern women in Dallas who explained precisely why the Trump support among women was rock-solid among Conservatives then and will continue:
The Blue Wave
Here we go again! That famous Democrat “Blue Wave” that in 2018 put Democrats back in control of the House of Representatives is, according to Democrats, now a tsunami headed for the shores of the Potomac in 2020 to sweep Mr. Trump from office. And swept up in that wave are suburban women who will determine who will replace Mr. Trump.
But we DO know a few things that the Blue Wave rumors do not confirm:
- As the above-quoted report confirms, suburban women have NOT fled from the support of the President or GOP candidates;
- Women still are the key demographic that determine election outcomes. Therefore NO GOP candidate (or any candidate) can take that voting block for granted. Despite what Media pundits want Americans to believe, many Trump policies are purposely aimed at female voters. What would those issues be? The economy. This American economy is and will continue to be the critical factor for women voters in 2020.
Who controls the election narrative in America? No matter how easy it is in today’s 24/7 instant media environment, the mass media control the political narrative. We have watched in horror in the past decade as the Media Mob has en masse directly and purposely impacted the flow of “truth” in the marketplace of ideas. And most of the time, that media agenda has become a concerted effort to impact election results with “slanted” information — or as the “Woke” American media prefer to state it is “Their Truth.”
Remember the 1990s marketing line that we all learned the hard way: “Perception is Reality?” There was much truth in that statement in the 90s, and it has never been more appropriate than it is in today’s media messaging.
Regarding the Blue Wave in 2018 and the flow of the support of women, NBC illustrated the “Perception Doctrine” in Media:
We are living in the year 2018, and the GOP seems to have only just now discovered it has a woman problem. The blue wave of the midterms — substantially propelled by women’s organizing and woman candidates — has left the Republican party scrambling to shore up support among suburban, college-educated women, who seem to be fleeing the party en masse. Yet for a party that has thoroughly and obsessively defined itself based on white male needs and sensibilities for at least a decade, the call to change may be impossible to heed. Times are moving too fast for Republicans to catch up. There is one big, obvious reason why women are fleeing the Republican party, and it’s currently sitting in the Oval Office: Trump, the big, orange, ugly, angry reminder of exactly how much men can get away with.
