This has been a good week for Joe Biden. His campaign stated that more than $80 million was raised in May, with an additional $6 million from a recent fundraiser with Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and $3.5 million more raised with Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.

Online contributions have risen as well, tripling over the past few weeks. And although Biden’s cash flow is less than half of the president’s, in 2016 Donald Trump lost the money race but won the presidency.

More good news for the former vice president is his rise in the polls against President Trump. Especially with women, who I believe will be the deciding factor in the November 2020 presidential election. I know my colleague and friend Juan Williams says the black vote will decide both Biden and Trump’s fate, but I disagree.

Recent polling has found Biden ahead of Trump by 15 percent (Drudge Report) and many poo-poo those numbers and polls because Hillary Clinton was ahead in 2016 and lost.

But when you look at Biden’s lead, especially with female registered voters, he has historic high polling numbers among women voters. Biden’s leading with female registered voters by 50 percent to 35 percent. Clinton, a female herself had an advantage, but only 14 percentage points. And, Biden’s point margin among female voters has grown from 19 percent earlier this year to the 25-point margin he currently holds.

Back in 2016, the president only lost women over 45 by 3 percentage points and won over both white women and voters over 45 with 52 percent. But now, Trump’s seeing support waning with women over 45. Biden is leading in this group by 17 points, up from 9 in March, according to the latest ABC/Washington Post poll.

And Biden’s popularity with women is growing in swing battleground states. Although in 2016 Hillary had female support in states like Georgia, Iowa and Texas, Democrats knew they couldn’t win those states. But the latest polls have Biden within striking distance. He is currently tied with Trump in Arkansas and there are whispers that Georgia might turn blue.
