(RepublicanNews.org) – Former President Donald Trump is finding increasing popularity among women voters, a recent Emerson poll discovered, Newsmax reported.
The Emerson Poll found that Trump was seeing a surge in popularity among women voters despite being accused by columnist E. Jean Carroll of assault. Carroll sued Trump on allegations of rape and defamation, which she claimed occurred in the 1990s in the dressing room of a Bergdorf Goodman department store in Manhattan, New York City, Newsmax reported. After a jury heard her claims, and despite Trump’s counterclaim that he is innocent and “does not know” Carroll, a jury awarded the columnist $5 million.
At the time of this report, Trump had motioned to appeal the jury ruling in Carroll’s favor, Newsmax reported. Since the case, E. Jean Carroll has appeared in legacy and left-leaning media outlets celebrating the verdict. Carroll and her lawyer, Dahlia Lithwick, appeared recently on Amicus’ podcast to discuss how it “felt to win,” Slate Magazine wrote.
The Emerson College poll was reportedly conducted after Trump was accused of abusing Carroll, Newsmax reported. The survey’s findings showed that “52.3%” of the women voters who were surveyed had said that they would support Trump in the 2024 election, particularly in the next GOP primary elections in Kentucky. This figure was compared to the “47.2%” of surveyed male voters who gave the same response regarding the Kentucky GOP primary, Newsmax reported.
Trump’s current surge in popularity among women appeared to follow a trend from previous campaigns. In 2021, Pew Research Center found in its “validated voter” survey a surge in Trump’s popularity among women voters as well as the Hispanic ethnic demographic, Politico reported.
At the time of their 2021 report, Politico pointed out that Trump, despite his surge of popularity among women and Hispanic voters, “lost anyway.” The results of the 2020 election, and Trump’s popularity among women, have been subjects of heated political debate in the months to follow.
Trump has since maintained that, in his view, he was the rightful winner of the 2020 election. At the time of this report, Trump had heated criticism for the legal cases brought against him and how Manhattan wanted to “prosecute’ him, which were points he shared to Truth Social Media, reposting content by Tom Fitton and Judicial Watch.
