Do more women support Joe Biden than Donald Trump?

Claim: Multiple polls have shown that a large number of people who support Vice President Joe Biden are women, and that women will be a key demographic in deciding this election.
Rating: We rate this claim as TRUE. Women make up 51% of the American population and these polls show that Biden has the overwhelming support of female voters going into the 2020 election. This is most likely due to his work as a co-sponsor on the Violence Against Women Act, which reduced domestic violence against women by 64%. His work in the Obama Administration also helped raise awareness of the prevalence of sexual assault on college campuses and among young people.

Has the Trump administration been good for women?

Claim: President Donald Trump has claimed that he has done more for women than any other president of the United States.
Rating: This claim is MOSTLY FALSE. The Trump administration has cut funding for women’s health services, and has also rolled back rules from the Obama administration to fight the gender wage gap. Currently, women are paid 82 cents for every $1 that a man makes.

Do Joe Biden and the Democrats support late-term abortion?

Claim: President Donald Trump has said that former Vice President Joe Biden and the Democrats support late-term abortion, including up until the moment of birth.
Rating: This is MOSTLY FALSE. Joe Biden supports Roe v. Wade, the landmark Supreme Court ruling that made abortion legal in the United States. In the U.S., abortion is legal up until about 24 weeks. After that point, abortion is only allowed in situations where the woman’s life is threatened or if the fetus has birth defects that would not let it live outside of the womb.
