Some Trump supporters have taken to Twitter to demand a repeal of the 19th amendment — which in 1920 gave U.S. women the right to vote — after national polling indicated an extreme gender gap among presidential support.

On Tuesday FiveThirtyEight.com statistician Nate Silver displayed models of what the electoral map would look like if only men and then women voted.

Based on a demographic breakdown of recent national polls, Silver found if only women voted Clinton would claim 458 electoral votes to Trump's 80 votes.

Conversely, if only men were able to vote Trump would claim 350 electoral votes versus Clinton's 188.

The hashtag, #RepealThe19th, began trending shortly after Silver's post, with both men and women lashing out at Hillary Clinton and attacking feminism.

Other Twitter users denounced the trend by sharing memes of strong female characters rolling their eyes and voicing their displeasure.
