Donald Trump daughters make metro Atlanta appearance

Gender gap could play role in election result

Donald Trump’s daughters made an appeal to women as they made an appearance in metro Atlanta on Wednesday.

Ivanka and Tiffany Trump made a quick stop in front of supporters at Cobb County GOP headquarters before sitting down at a roundtable in front of a group of working women.

The group consisted of doctors, teachers, business owners -- all with concerns and fears heading into election day.

"We're looking forward to their dad being in office and changing health care policies, tax codes," business owner Edra Matthews said. "As a small business owner, those are what are most important to me."

Taxes, health care, and child care dominated the hour-long conversation.

"Just being a working mom and all the expenses that come with childcare," another attendee said.

Ivanka Trump took time to respond to each of their concerns.

"There are so many layers now you need to be a rocket scientist to be an entrepreneur to open a business,’ she said.

In Decatur, the Georgia Democrats urged women to vote early for Hillary Clinton.

"In years past, while we have been making a decision between Democrat and republican, the difference, I think, has not been as dramatic and the implications of that choice I think matter a lot," Democratic Rep. Stacey Abrams of Georgia District 89 said.

Polls show Trump's standing with women continues to nosedive - a storyline that's sure to, at least, play a role on Nov. 8.
