538: Men are treating 2016 as a normal election. Women aren’t.

October 17, 2016

Harry Enten at FiveThirtyEight sums up the current polling:

We could be looking at the largest gender gap in a presidential election since at least 1952…The last time women favored either party’s nominee by more than 20 percentage points was in 1972, when Republican Richard Nixon crushed Democrat George McGovern among both sexes. The only Democrat ever to win women by more than 20 points was Lyndon Johnson in 1964.”
