>> i think the only card she has is the woman's card. she's got nothing else going. and, frankly, if hillary clinton were a man, i don't think she would get 5% of the vote. the only thing she's got going is the woman's card and the beautiful thing is women don't like her, okay? >> well, the latest nbc news/"wall street journal" shows trump unfavorability rating among women at nearly 70%. a hypothetical head-to-head matchup against clinton, 33% of women would support trump while 56% say they would back clinton. clinton won 4 out of the 5 states on tuesday taking delaware, pennsylvania, connecticut, m.d. bernie sanders pulled out a victory in rhode island but clinton won more delegation and only 242 away from reaching the magic number for the
