Hillary Clinton Raised More From Women Than Any Recent Candidate. Donald Trump Raised Less.

Hillary Clinton has raised a higher percentage of her campaign funds from women than any major party presidential candidate in recent history. She’s also raised a higher total in contributions from women than any other candidate at this point in the cycle.

And Donald Trump has the dubious honor of achieving the exact opposite: He has raised less from women than any other major party’s nominee at this point in the presidential cycle since at least 1989 (which is as far back as our data goes). Women have also given his campaign less as a share of total contributions than any White House candidate.

The stark difference between the two presidential front-runners’ fundraising bases highlights the role of gender in a race featuring both the country’s first woman ever to be a major party’s presumed nominee and a celebrity billionaire who repeatedly has made insulting comments about women.

Still, the race dynamic makes for the largest gender gap in presidential fundraising history. Clinton has raised 53 percent of her campaign’s contributions of more than $200 from women, a Center for Responsive Politics analysis shows, while the comparable figure for Trump is a mere 28 percent. The divide is nearly twice what it was in 2012, when President Barack Obama raised 44 percent of his funds from women versus former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s 28 percent.

Clinton has raised $74 million from women who gave more than $200 — almost $10 million more than she’s raised from men in the same category. That’s far more than Trump, who has done little in the way of broad fundraising and has received just $688,640 from women giving more than $200.

2. I can't imagine why

women would be so reluctant to send their hard-earned dollars to the short-fingered vulgarian.
