More Women Donated to President Trump Than Any Democratic Candidate

by David Harris Jr. 

More women have donated to President Trump’s reelection campaign than for any Democrat candidate. And far more women have donated money this time around than contributed to his 2016 campaign. 45% of his donations have come from women and 55% from men. In 2016, 52% of Hillary’s contributors were women. All told, women have contributed over 7.5 million dollars more than all of the Democrat candidates have received combined. 10,375 women have donated to Trump in the first quarter of 2019, more than double the nearest Democrat challenger. California Sen. Kamala Harris had the second highest number of female donors with 3,850. That’s nearly three times as much.

Trump’s average donation per woman donor is also much lower than his top female opponents. New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s average donation was $1,321, and Sen. Harris’s average was $935 per woman respectively, while Trump’s donors average out to $141.

The data, compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics, uses publicly available contribution information from the Federal Elections Commission (FEC). Individual donors are only itemized with the FEC once they reach at least $200 in donations to a particular candidate.
