Trump fared well with women voters despite sex assault claims

Despite sex assault allegations hounding him, fat-shaming a former beauty queen and his controversial abortion stand, a large number of women voters helped put Donald Trump in the White House. Some 53 percent of white women voters supported the Republican candidate, CNN said, the majority of them (62 percent) non-college educated. The results upended predictions that sexist and degrading comments Trump made against women would sway female voters — who accounted for about 52 percent of the electorate Tuesday — in favor of a candidate that could have broken the glass ceiling.
