Clinton vs. Trump: Huge Gender Gap Among Donors

While I was well aware of the chasm between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump when it comes to women voters, until I searched for a breakdown by gender of their donors, I had no idea what the numbers revealed.

For Trump, male donors (11,600) comprise a total of 73 %, $8.4 million, and female donors (7,200) made up a paltry 27%, $3.1 million.

On the other side, Clinton's male contributors (79,800) came to 46%, $83.5 million, while her female contributors (119,700) were at 54%, $97.4 million.

I rounded some numbers and the actual figures are in the screengrabs.

No matter how you slice these numbers, Clinton is clearly ahead terms of overall donors and amounts raised. Let's see if this all translates into a victory for her in November. Sure hope so!
