When voters went to the polls last November, seven in 10 said they were bothered – a lot or some – by Donald Trump’s treatment of women. Now, while most of those voters didn’t vote for him, 28 percent did, including a quarter of women and a third of men who found his treatment of women bothersome. CONT.
