In the above photo is Senator Joni Ernst of Iowa. She is one of 4 women whom Donald Trump has been considering for his running mate. The other women are Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee, Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona, and Governor Mary Fallin of Oklahoma.
Though the choice of the vice president does not typically alter the votes in favor of a typical candidate, Trump is not a typical candidate. Since he began his campaign for the presidency, he has continuously made insensitive remarks about various people. Consequently, a significant portion of the electorate considers him to be a bully and a misogynist.
A tough, smart, and compassionate vice president from the feminine gender will convince voters that Trump is, in his heart of hearts, a decent person. Is Trump sufficiently, politically smart to realize that he must select a female vice president?
