Trump Supporters Call for Repealing Women’s Suffrage After Poll Shows Men Support Him in a Landslide

Donald Trump is on track to win the White House in a landslide — at least according to a poll of only male U.S. voters.

The Trump campaign seized on Nate Silver’s findings — published Tuesday — that if only men voted in the election, Trump would defeat Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton by a tally of 350 to 188 electoral votes.

The GOP nominee’s son Eric Trump reportedly shared Silver’s projection map of male voters in a fundraising email Wednesday morning that said, per Buzzfeed: “The mainstream media are doing everything they can to prop up Crooked Hillary and downplay the incredible Donald Trump surge happening across the nation. We need your help to continue funding our aggressive ad blitzes and our campaign’s get-out-the-vote operation. We’re making huge gains against Crooked Hillary that you can see for yourself.”

Trump supporters responded enthusiastically by taking to Twitter with a new strategy: Repeal the 19th Amendment so women can’t vote in 2016.

The #RepealThe19th hashtag first emerged on Twitter Tuesday, and men weren’t the only ones posting:

But #RepealThe19th was quickly coopted by other women, Clinton supporters and others who took issue with the hashtag.

Even the (fictional) Frank Underwood weighed in, tweeting of his (fictional) wife: “Anyone who thinks they can #Repealthe19th never met Claire.”
