According to data released last week (Aug 4) from Foursquare, the traffic to Trump's golf courses, hotels and casinos in the US has steadily declined since March, the time around when the real-estate tycoon started gaining momentum in the race to the White House.

The data is based on the behaviour of Foursquare's 50 million monthly users.

While in March, visitors to Trump-branded properties fell 17 per cent compared to the same period in 2015, in July it was doen by 14 per cent. The data also revealed that the traffic to those places was steady over the years till Trump started to run for the presidency. [Jeb Bush's son backs Trump]

What is the reason for contradiction between business and politics in Trump's case?

According to the report, Trump's properties are mostly located in Democratic states and Trump's campaign rhetoric could have a determining effect on how the people who use those properties in the 'blue' states behave.

It was said that Trump SoHo in New York and the Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago have seen the biggest declines in footfall.

In fact, the study also said that women visitors to Trump-branded properties have diminished, something which could reflect on the derogatory remarks that the Republican presidential nominee has made on them.

The Foursquare report, however, did not make any claims about sales in the Trump-branded properties.
