TRUMP, APPEALS TO ALPHA FEMALES?

COULD ALPHA FEMALES GET TRUMP ELECTED?

As several people pointed out in response to my last post, if --as the creator of Dilbert, Scott Adams, is suggesting--Donald Trump's appeal to Alpha males and the women who admire him aren't enough to get him elected. But what about Alpha Females? Perhaps we should consider this: In the New York Times of 1/30 under "Election 2016" we read, "RALEIGH, N.C. — North Carolina has a split political personality. Consider Debbie Holt."
"A staunch supporter of abortion rights, Ms. Holt, 56, who owns a barbecue restaurant in downtown Raleigh, makes clear where she stands on other fronts in the culture wars with signs in her storefront window: “Stop profiling Muslims,” says one. Another: “Go To The Bathroom Where You Feel Best.”
"Yet Ms. Holt is also an outspoken supporter of Mr. Trump. “He don’t take any stuff, just like me,” she drawled in between ringing up lunch-rush customers, using a more piquant word for stuff."
If she is an "Alpha Female" (definitions vary), are there a significant number out there? I can't find any research on the subject. Perhaps Scott Adams analysis is limited because it doesn't include them.
