LAS VEGAS — After the third and final Presidential debate of the 2016 election season, recent polls conducted last night and early this morning show Republican nominee Donald Trump has lost significant ground with the key voting demographics of Bad Hombres and Nasty Women, according to multiple polling services.
In a Quinnipiac poll published just hours ago, Trump support is down to a 13-month low of 26% among Nasty Women, indicating that Trump will face an uphill battle in the general election. A similar Economist/YouGov poll showed that a staggering 87% of Bad Hombres view Trump as not favorable and, furthermore, are not scared of him at all.
The third debate was arguably the most thrilling yet, with both candidates showing off the skills they’d gained in the previous two, but Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton still managed to bait Trump into attacking many groups of undecided voters, including Latinos, women, and Russian President Vladimir Putin.
While Clinton most certainly lost the Puppet vote with her derogatory comments about Donald Trump being one, that number is dwarfed by the demographics lost by Trump, which is nearly all of them. Trump is no stranger to controversy, promising to, if elected, ban all Muslims, including Yusuf Islam (formally Cat Stevens), and to deport as many Bad Hombres as possible, even if they pay more in taxes than him.
Being divisive and exclusive has really hurt Trump’s poll numbers, especially among women, minorities, and the reasonable—all key demographics in this election cycle. While Trump has consistently said and tweeted that “no one is more respectful of women” than he is, he still trails behind Hillary Clinton with “pigs,” “slobs,” “eating machines,” and “less-than-tens.” He can now, unfortunately for him, add the enviable Nasty Women demographic to that list.
With thousands upon thousands of Bad Hombres and Nasty Women remaining largely undecided up until now, Trump undoubtedly lost those key groups thanks to his negative and insulting debate performance. Until now, they could’ve gone either way.
