Report: Trump Rates Highly Among Women Donors

If you want to see where President Donald Trump rates among the women electorate, perhaps you may want to follow the money.

President Trump received more than 45 percent of the itemized individual contributions in the first quarter from women, and only two Democratic candidates carried a higher percentage, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, the New York Post reported.

Only Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-N.Y., (53 percent) and Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., (49 percent) held higher first quarter donations rate among women than President Trump, according to the report.

President Trump did trail both in overall individual donation dollars from women, but he outraised both overall ($30.3 million) in the first quarter, according to Federal Elections Commission records, the Post reported.

President Trump raised $3.2 million from individual donors, $1.5 million from women, per the Post.

“It’s dribs and drabs – I give $3 here, $5 there,” Staten Island’s Rose Bove, 73, told the Post, having given a total of $259.65, according to the FEC.

“I supported him from day one. I support him, and I’ll help him along in this campaign in any small way that I can.”

Harris brought in $7.4 million from individuals, 49 percent of that from women, while Gillibrand raised $2.4 million from individuals and 53 percent of which came from women. Harris ($13.2 million) and Gillibrand ($12.6 million) were far behind the president in total dollars raised, according to the report.
