    A new survey of women voters suggests a general election contest between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton could be disastrous for the Republican Party.

    Nearly half of the female Republican electorate (47 percent) currently has a difficult time imagining voting for Trump as the Republican presidential nominee, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.

    Far fewer say the same of Trump's two remaining opponents, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (32 percent) and Ohio Gov. John Kasich (27 percent).

    Trump also has the worst favorability rating among female voters overall of any remaining Republican presidential hopeful. Seventy percent of women voters harbor negative views of the brash New York billionaire, compared to just 21 percent who view him favorably.

    Small wonder after seeing the contempt that he has toward them.

    He just treats men and women equally. It's what women want.

    If it is what women want why are they turning against him?

    "They" are not turning against him. The Feminists are. Some of his biggest supporters among my FB friends are women.

    But he doesn't say anything about women. He says things about individuals. He calls Ted, Lyin' Ted, but you don't hear anyone saying anything about how he has a problem with men.

    He says things about individual females, and suddenly he has a problem with women. God names Rahab a harlot. Is God a misogynist?

    If they are not turning against him how is it now that 47% of Republican women say they will not vote for him?

    I will edit the third quote of Donald Trump's comment about women to make it less offensive.

    Trump said:

    • "A person who is flat-chested is very hard to be a 10."
    • "I like kids. I mean, I won't do anything to take care of them; I'll supply funds, and she'll take care of the kids."
    • "Women, you have to treat them like s***"

    So only the "feminists" have a problem with him disrespecting women? That certainly doesn't speak kindly of the non-feminists.
    If he called one Jew the S word, or if he called one Black the "N" word, or if he called all old white men who support the GOP establishment a bunch of "Fa#$%^s", he'd have the same problem.




    God hasn't been divorced three times.
    God hasn't said disgusting things about individual women.

    Me either.Thumbsup I have to give an account to God.

    And I frankly can't see how some Christians can rationalize standing before God and saying they supported some of these people because they believed that person could "take the country back" or "turn the country around".O O

    Yep. The standing before God saying "Yep, I voted for him!" is what keeps me from doing it - and the fact that I find both of them repugnant and Sanders as well. I'm just praying that there is a viable third party candidate that can take my vote because with these three, it would be enough of a reason to stay home.

    And this is what I find distressing. As many Southern Baptists alone as there are, we couldn't come up with one decent candidate to make us want to vote. I'll write someone in as I have the last few times.

    This election is like a nightmare. I wish I would wake up and there would be someone decent running!

    If a woman is a bimbo, is it misogyny to call her a bimbo?

    If a man is a himbo, is it all right to call him a himbo?

    If a woman is harlot, is it misogyny to call her a whore?

    What about [edited] women?

    [Edited]?

    Or are only men capable of these character flaws?
