The Structure of Presidential Evaluations: White Men, White Women, and Trump

Danielle Lemi, Tower Center Fellow, conducts a study using an intersectional lens to analyze the structure of presidential evaluations among white men and white women. In this study, Lemi studies mid-term evaluations of President Trump in 2018, focusing on white voters. She looks at the position of power that white men and women hold because of their racial and gender classification. 

Lemi argues that the factors associated with favorable evaluations of Trump in 2018 differed among white men and women. This article demonstrates that research on gender in politics has proved that there are several gaps between men and women.
