White women's educational attainment is the best predictor of their political views

The biggest predictor of a white woman's political views is her educational level, political science professor Michael Cornfield said Friday.

"The swing there is education level, which is to say Trump made his biggest gains among women from Democrats, among working-class or women without a college degree," Cornfield, co-director of the George Washington University Poll, told Hill.TV's Jamal Simmons on "What America's Thinking."

Trump currently has high disapproval ratings and low approval ratings among women.

However, Trump has enjoyed support from working-class women without college degrees. 

"What's really going to be interesting is how white, working-class women are processing this epic drama," he continued. 

Sixty-three percent of women said they disapproved of Trump, while 30 percent said they approved, according to a recent Pew Research Center poll. 

The numbers have the potential to not bode well for Trump ahead of the midterms, which have seen a record number of female candidates.
