My hypothesis is that Trump appeals to the pro wrestling type of person which is often the NCEWM. And remember, Trump was involved with pro wrestling.

With trump, you get the loud mouth ‘good’ guy who trash talks the ‘bad’ guy. In wrestling, the good guy would be bragging loudly about how he’s going to kick the bad guy’s ass. With Trump, they can express their anger about pressing 1 for English, transgender bathrooms, and Indigenous Peoples Day.

My theory is that NCEWM voted for Trump in the first place is that he thinks (simplistic, concrete) and talks like they do. Since they identify with him so strongly, eschewing him would be like eschewing themselves.

NCEWW, on the other hand, were apparently turned off by his racist attacks on The Squad, according to the WaPo. Not sure why this upsets them when the "grab 'em" tape didn't, but since they don't identify with Trump like their male counterparts do, their support is softer.
