Fifty percent of women in the United States have a "very unfavorable view" of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, which Megyn Kelly could have predicted from the first GOP debate.

"Mr. Trump, one of the things people love about you is you speak your mind and you don't use a politician's filter," she said. "However, that is not without its downsides, in particular, when it comes to women. You've called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and disgusting animals." And since the debate, he claimed his opponent Carly Fiorina was too ugly to run for the White House.

"If I were to direct every hateful or racist remark that Donald Trump has ever made against anyone who’s not a billionaire racist, I would be here a long time," said Daniela Biah, who happens to be the Trump triumvirate of contempt: Mexican, Muslim and female.

The Reuters/Ipsos polling results also showed that just 36 percent of men said they have a "very unfavorable opinion of Trump, a level that has held steady in recent months."

His low support with women and minorities hasn't seemed to slow his lead. Republican operative David Carney wrote, “If the presidential election were tomorrow, women would be a big problem for Trump, But he has time to fix it.”

And if he doesn't, he'll need 7 out of 10 white guys to win, according to Politico.
