Poll: 60 percent of women say they definitely won't vote for Trump in 2020

A majority of women say they will definitely not vote for President Trump in 2020, a new Quinnipiac University poll has found.

In a survey released by Quinnipiac on Thursday, 60 percent of women voters said they would "definitely not" vote for Trump in the 2020 election assuming he becomes the Republican nominee, as flagged by The Washington Post's Greg Sargent. This is compared to 27 percent of women who said they would definitely vote for him. Another 10 percent said they would consider voting for him, while three percent weren't sure.

Among voters overall, 53 percent said they would definitely not vote for Trump in 2020, while 30 percent said they definitely would and 13 percent said they'd consider it.

This is a similar finding to some other polls in recent months, such as one from the Post in January, in which 64 percent of women said they definitely wouldn't vote for Trump in 2020, with 20 percent saying they definitely would and 15 percent saying they'd consider it. Compared to this, Quinnipiac's poll is actually a slight improvement.

Exit polls from the 2016 election showed that about 41 percent of women voted for Trump, although he earned 52 percent of the support from white women, per the Post. In November, an Axios poll showed 64 percent of women have an unfavorable view of the president.

Quinnipiac's poll was conducted by speaking with 1,358 voters over the phone from March 21-25. The margin of error is 3.3 percentage points. Read the full results at Quinnipiac.
