Trump should be worried about new poll showing women disapprove of his rhetoric, pollster says

Pollster Mallory Newall said Friday that President TrumpDonald John TrumpThe Memo: Biden seeks revival in South Carolina Congress eyes billion to billion to combat coronavirus Sanders makes the case against Biden ahead of SC primary MORE should be concerned about recent polling, which shows women disapprove of his rhetoric toward minorities. 

"There were some numbers in this poll that I think should raise alarm bells for President Trump and his allies," Newall, research director at Ipsos Public Affairs, told Hill.TV's Krystal Ball on "What America's Thinking."

"A majority of women in this country don't respond well, or are concerned, to the way that he talks about women, the way that he talks about immigrants, people of color," she continued, referring to a new poll from American University and the Benenson Strategy Group.

"So I think there is a big question on the table. ... Is the rhetoric going to shift moving into 2020?" she added.

The survey, which was released earlier this week, found that 60 percent of women voters said they had an unfavorable view of Trump.

More than three-quarters of women surveyed said they were troubled by Trump's tone or policies, while over half said they were troubled by both.

The poll comes nearly a month after November's midterm elections, which featured a record number of women candidates on the ballots and women voters at the polls. This year's elections were largely seen as a referendum on Trump's first two years in office.
