US midterms: Ivanka Trump ‘to be dispatched to suburban districts’ where president's hardline policies are turning off supporters

Ivanka Trump is reportedly set to spearhead the White House campaign among suburban voters in coming weeks, as strategists fear her father’s hardline policies and rhetoric – so beloved by his base – are turning off educated and female voters whose support will be vital to keeping control of the House of Representatives.

Many believe this week’s special election in Ohio, where a Democrat has come to within half-a-point of winning a solidly red seat Republicans have held since 1980, shows while Mr Trump’s support among his base remains solid, suburban voters, some of whom may have voted for him in 2016, are rethinking their support.

The Washington Post said as a result, Mr Trump will campaign heavily in states such as West Virginia, which he won solidly in 2016, and swing states like Ohio. But his eldest daughter, a senior White House advisor, will travel to suburban districts and talk about the strong economy and her own efforts to help the workforce.
