US Election 2020: Why the 'suburban women's vote' is interesting the pollsters

Donald Trump has been trying to attract women voters, specifically suburban women, whose support in swing states could prove to be crucial. His appeals have ranged from openly begging for their support, to promising to get their husbands back to work. But current polls suggest affluent, educated women are not listening to what some are calling “tone-deaf” and “outdated” appeals. Others, however, state that he has earned their loyalty by acting decisively to bring in federal troops during the protests this summer following the death of George Floyd. Sophie Long reports from Wisconsin and hears the views of 'suburban women voters' there.
