Donald Trump has all but clinched the Republican nomination for president, and Hillary Clinton is already exploring ways to woo Republicans turned off by the brash billionaire.

The Democratic front-runner’s campaign believes Trump’s historically high unfavorable ratings may be enough to persuade a slice of GOP voters to get behind her bid, in much the same way so-called Reagan Democrats sided with the Republican president in 1980s.

Clinton’s aides caution their effort to win over Republicans is in its earliest stages, but could grow to include ads and other outreach targeted in particular at suburban women in battleground states.

Already, aides say, a number of Republicans have privately told Clinton and her team they plan to break party ranks as soon as Trump formally captures his party’s nomination.
