As we approach the 2020 Presidential Elections, there are still voters who are undecided, and their choice could change the direction of the country. Swing Voters, voters who do not vote consistently with a political party represent 15% of the electorate in the battleground States.
Recent polling from AIT with Emerson College Polling and Lake Research Partners identified a new group of women swing voters for the 2020 election. This year, “Guardian Women” constitute a key swing vote. They split in party identification and in their Presidential preference (46% Biden, 42% Trump, 12% undecided), but they all value security and see themselves as protectors of their family. Guardian Women are very committed to turning out in the November election and could represent a decisive group.
