Things like this are rather ominous, but not unexpected with this candidate

PEW: White women with college degrees (%):

McCain -3
Romney -1
Trump -31https://t.co/C9JUZttiXy[1] pic.twitter.com/mwyiJSkUYr[2]

While Trump has done better in a few metrics, many of them are very bad

Men Overall

McCain D+1
Romney R+10
Trump R+6


McCain D+15
Romney D+14
Trump D+24

Trump is doing worse among the 19-29 crowd. Worse among women 18-49. Worse among women 50+. Worse among married and unmarried women. For education, worse among postdoc and college grad.

For those making $100,000+

McCain R+10
Romney R+8
Trump D+8

Among moderate/liberal Republicans, though

McCain R+57
Romney R+68
Trump R+72

On the bright side, from the accompanying article[4], we find

Overall satisfaction with the choice of candidates is at its lowest point in two decades. Currently, fewer than half of registered voters in both parties – 43% of Democrats and 40% of Republicans – say they are satisfied with their choices for president.

Roughly four-in-ten voters (41%) say it is difficult to choose between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton because neither would make a good president – as high as at any point since 2000. And just 11% say the choice is difficult because either would make a good chief executive, the lowest percentage during this period.

On the bright side, more registered voters find the campaigns interesting. Probably because they are not focused on issues that matter (only 27% say focused on issues) and are more like watching daytime trash shows.

In another sign of voter discontent, large numbers of the supporters of both Trump and Clinton view their choice as more of a vote against the opposing candidate than an expression of support for their candidate. More than half of Trump supporters (55%) view their vote more as a vote against Clinton, while just 41% view it more as a vote for Trump.

Clinton’s supporters are divided – 48% view their vote more as a vote for their own candidate, while 50% say it is more a vote against Trump.

Can we just start over?
