Though Hillary Clinton currently leads Donald Trump in most up-to-date election polls, FiveThirtyEight’s Nate Silver noticed a large gender gap in a recent poll conducted by The Atlantic, showing Trump leading Clinton among men by 11 points, but trailing her among women by 33.
Such large numbers prompted Silver to illustrate how the election would go today if only each gender could vote. The results are not surprising.
The above map shows how Clinton would win if only women voted. Silver explains he averaged Clinton’s current 10-point lead among women from a bunch of national polls and added those 10 points to every state to calculate how the hypothetical female-determined election would go. In addition to where she already leads, this added margin would put Clinton ahead in "Alaska, Arizona, Georgia, Kansas, Indiana, Missouri, Montana, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas and the 2nd congressional districts in Maine and Nebraska," easily handing her the election.
Contrastingly, when Silver subtracted the 10 points, he got "an awfully red map," giving Trump a win in every potential swing state and an overwhelming victory in this fake man election.
