Final Presidential Polls: Women Voters Give Clinton Lead

Democrat Hillary Clinton is holding fast to a four-point lead over Republican Donald Trump with less than 48 hours to go before Americans head to the polls to pick their next president, according to the final poll of the campaign from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal, released on Sunday.

While Clinton owes her lead in the poll to a number of combined factors, chief among them what appears to be her decisive advantage among women voters.

Among all “likely” voters, Clinton tops Trump with 44 percent support, to just 40 for the New York real estate mogul. Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, a former governor of New Mexico, garnered six percent while Green Party nominee Jill Stein sits on two percent of the prospective vote.

In a one-on-one race, Clinton’s lead expands slightly, to five points. She beats Trump 48-43 in the poll, a five-point advantage, when respondents were asked to choose only between the Democrat and the Republican, leaving out Stein and Johnson.

But Clinton’s lead among women is considerably larger. The former Secretary of State who if elected would become the 45th president and the first woman ever to hold the high office, leads the women’s vote by 15 percentage points, 53 to 38.

Trump, on the other hand, holds a narrower lead among men, with 47 percent of male voters in the NBC/WSJ poll saying that they plan to vote for Trump, against 42 percent who say they will vote for Clinton.

Scroll through and read all of the numbers from the new poll in the document below.

However, a competing “final” poll also released Sunday from the online magazine Politico and the research firm Morning Consult shows Clinton with a considerably smaller lead among women — just six points, with not even half of all women voters in the poll saying they are willing to commit to a Clinton vote.

Clinton leads among women in the Politico/Morning Consult poll, 47 points to 41 over Trump.

Overall, the Politico/Morning Consult poll shows Clinton holding a three-point lead over Trump with two days to go, 45-42.

The two polls showing Clinton winning the vote among women line up with the findings of the research firm TargetSmart, which analyzed early voting conducted up through Friday, November 4. The TargetSmart study found that nearly 40 million early voters had turned in ballots by that date — and that nearly 56 percent of them were women.

Using a statistical model, TargetSmart concluded that Clinton was likely to be winning among all early voters by 8.9 percentage points over Trump — 47.5 to 38.6, a lead that given the findings about turnout among women Clinton almost certainly owes to the early votes of women.

“At current rates, nearly one-third of American women will have an abortion (AGI).” “Black women are more than 4.8 times more likely than non-Hispanic white women to have an abortion, and Hispanic women are 2.7 times as likely (AGI). The abortion rate of non-metropolitan women is about half that of women who live in metropolitan counties (NAF).” “In 2009, 85% of all abortions were performed on unmarried women (CDC).” “In 1998, the last year for which estimates were made, more than 23% of legal induced abortions were performed in California (CDC).” “In 2009, the highest number of reported abortions occurred in New York (119,996) . . .” It is abundantly clear, that the right to shed innocent blood, is the key factor why women who do not want to have a conceived child, have and are now voting Democratic. “Only 12% of women included a physical problem with their health among reasons for having an abortion (NAF). One per cent (of aborting women) reported that they were the survivors of rape (NAF).” The majority 87% choose termination, even though it is a form of physical genocide and depopulation of their own ethnic groups, particularly for Black women, Hispanic women, and poor inner city working women; due to interference with work, school or other responsibilities, child not affordable, lack of desire to be a single parent, or the disruption between partners, with no desire to birth a child, for later adoption.
