Published: August 6 2016 12:23 am Illustration by C R Sasikumar Top News Many an expert has got the rise of Donald Trump and his nomination all wrong It would be foolhardy to make an election forecast but election junkies like me cannot resist the temptation Especially when most experts are wary of stating what according to the data seems obvious Hillary Clinton is headed for a landslide win against Trump But don’t take my word for it — just look at the historical data — if you come up with a different conclusion let me know But first some background on this election to provide some perspective on the debate and the angst The world had its 2016 Black Swan event with Brexit; and we are all naturally apprehensive about the US turning the Brexit way Make no mistake — a yes for Brexit is a vote for Trump except the British have a stiff upper lip and all that and are so politically correct in public Brexit was anti-immigration racist and anti-globalisation Is Donald Trump’s message and/or appeal any different For that matter note that both Bernie Sanders and Trump have near identical economic views I want to emphasise economic because obviously the two cannot be compared on social and/or political views But the fact that the very eminently respectable and very likeable Sanders keeps emphasising that the American worker has lost out (which she has) the question to be asked is — lost out to whom Very possibly the correct answer is lost out to the much poorer workers in the developing world As an American nationalist I am sure Sanders is not supportive of poor workers in the developing world becoming better off at the expense of the poor American worker but as a social liberal which Sanders proudly sees himself as surely he should not be lamenting this positive development The American worker Mr Sanders was losing out long before the banking crisis of 2007; actually according to you the American worker has lost out to free-trade for the last 30 years So what has that got to do with Wall Street And on economic views how are you different from Trump or the Brexit voter To Hillary Clinton’s huge credit she hasn’t yet sold out to rank populism So much for background The question remains what happens in 2016 In the US there are many polls in a single day and polls which shall continue till election-day (In India there are at best three or four polling organisations with at best two or three polls each before election-day) So if anything for the US the problem is too much information rather than too little And there is a surfeit of analysis as well — analysis by race (how will the Hispanics vote differently this time) by education (voting pattern of high school graduates versus others); by region (how will Pennsylvania Ohio and Florida vote); by age (the Millennials versus the senior citizens); and the male youth versus the rest Note that we have not mentioned analysis by sex For the simple reason that it is the simplest analysis to make with very few confounding factors In all US presidential races between 1952 and 2004 a consistently right bet was to bet on the men — that is whichever way the men voted that candidate won But since 2008 the men are losing their Midas touch In 2008 the men’s vote for Obama and McCain was tied at 50-50 and in 2012 the men were just wrong They backed Romney with a seven-point margin 52 to 45 per cent (Roper exit poll) and yet Obama won by a four-point margin 51-47 Women got the 1960 1968 and 1976 elections wrong by the narrowest of margins (49 per cent for the winning candidate) and the two Bush victories in 2000 and 2004 wrong by a larger margin (on average 53 per cent of women voted for the losing Democratic candidate) But for many reasons and the 2008 and 2012 errors of men are testimony the tide has turned in favour of the choice of the woman voter Look no further than this and Hillary Clinton is a clear winner Refine the stats a bit and Clinton wins by a healthy landslide There are at least three major reasons why we should hear what the women are saying First is that women live longer — that is the voting age population is not split 50:50 but more like 51:49 Second the voter turnout among women is higher than men The third factor is that since 1992 on average women have voted for a Democrat 55:45 Their lowest vote share for a Democrat post 1992 was for Kerry in 2004 (52 per cent) So coming into the 2016 election here are some bare facts Out of the approximately 250 million population of voting age 127 million will be female According to studies undertaken at the Center for American Women and Politics women have consistently out-voted the men since 1980 and in 2012 there was a 39 percentage point turnout gap (women turnout of 637 per cent to 598 per cent for men) This translates into 81 million women voters and 74 million men voters In 2012 the women voted for Obama 55 to 45 per cent and men voted for Romney 52 to 48 per cent (only Republican and Democrat votes are considered in the analysis) This net 6 per cent net advantage of the woman’s vote (10 per cent minus 4 per cent) translates into a 34 percentage point gap in the popular vote that is 517:483 Rounding up and before one can say “Where in the World is Trump” Clinton is likely to win 52:48 per cent The above simple “facts” or trends can be used to make a forecast of what might happen on November 8 And sparing you the computations the centre of gravity of the forecast is around 55 per cent for Clinton and 45 per cent for Trump This is obtained with women voting for Clinton:Trump 60:40 and men evenly split The most “likely” favourable outcome for Trump is if men vote for him 54 to 46 per cent With 60 per cent of women favouring Clinton (just 5 percentage points above the long run average since 1992) this still leaves Trump losing by nearly 7 percentage points — 533 per cent Clinton to Trump 467 per cent [Note that Obama’s average vote share in 2008 and 2012 was 53 per cent with an average vote gap of 57 percentage points between him and his Republican opponents] In a simple excel sheet you can derive your own forecast based on the basic facts given above (81 million voting women and 74 million voting males) You make your judgment calls — is it really likely that men will be wrong three elections in a row Will women really not turn out more for Clinton than they did for Obama There are no moral or sexist judgments here — just plain reality checks This is the age of women and the century of women around the world developed and developing By everyman accounts Clinton is the most qualified and in my opinion the best person to be US president (or leader of any democratic country) The odds are so much in her favour that Trump might eventually withdraw from the race However all things considered barring a Black Swan event it is Hillary Clinton by a landslide Surjit S Bhalla is contributing editor Indian Express and
