Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have launched into a rhetorical scrum, with the Republican front-runner eliciting a backlash that highlights his perilous standing among female voters who could help propel the likely Democratic nominee to the White House.Of those eleven, President Barack Obama, with 55 percent of the female vote nationally, won nine; Republican Mitt Romney won just two.The back-and-forth comes as Trump and Clinton solidify their nomination paths.Exit polls conducted for the Associated Press and television networks in 25 states this year show Clinton won 62 percent of female voters over Bernie Sanders' 36 percent.Women, however, were more likely than men to say they definitely would not vote for Trump in a general election, 66 percent to 60 percent. About half of men and women said they would definitely not vote for Clinton.Among Republicans only, primary exit polls have shown Trump facing a gender gap his last remaining rivals do not have.
