The Public Religion Research Institute poll conducted on behalf of The Atlantic has a look at how gender plays in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. The PRRI says Trump is facing a "historic deficit" among women voters. The poll shows 61 percent of women say they'll vote for Clinton compared with 28 percent for Trump.
The PRRI says there's also a huge gender divide. Their numbers show Trump holds an 11 percentage point advantage over Clinton among men. Statistician Nate Silver looked at several polls for an in-depth look at the gender gap. Silver says based on his research if only women voted in the 2016 election, Clinton would would win 458 electoral votes, Trump only 80. Silver says if only men voted Trump would win 350 electoral votes, compared to 188 for Clinton.
