(TruthAndLiberty.com) – According to an analysis of over 30 polls conducted in the last six months by The New York Times, President Joe Biden’s support among female voters has decreased since the 2020 election. His current lead among women is now smaller than former President Donald Trump’s support among male voters.

The surveys indicate that inflation has significantly impacted Biden’s support among women. Since the 2020 presidential election, Biden is only 8 percentage points ahead of Trump among female voters.

In response, the Biden campaign announced the launch of “Women for Biden-Harris” in late February. This nationwide initiative aims to organize and mobilize female voters to secure a second term for Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, with First Lady Jill Biden leading the effort.

Women played a crucial role in Biden’s 2020 election coalition, and his campaign hopes to rekindle that support. According to AP VoteCast, there was a 9-percentage point difference in support between men and women for Biden and Harris: 55% of women and 46% of men. This gap is similar to the 2018 midterms, where 58% of women and 48% of men supported Democrats in congressional races.

Recent polls by KFF, a nonprofit focusing on healthcare research, show a significant drop in Biden’s support among Black and Hispanic women. Additionally, The New York Times reports a notable decline in support among men, especially young men and those without a college degree.

Celinda Lake, a Democratic pollster specializing in women’s voting behavior, believes that the issue of abortion will energize female voters as the campaign progresses. Despite Trump’s efforts to moderate his image, Lake points out that he continues to highlight his role in overturning Roe v. Wade, which could further impact voter sentiment.
