Trump asserts Hillary Clinton "wouldn't get 5% of the vote" if she were male

After sweeping victories in five primaries last night, Donald Trump wasted no time turning his fire on Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton: “Frankly, if Hillary Clinton were a man, I don’t think she would get 5 percent of the vote,” Trump said. He claimed all she has going for her is "the women's card." He asserted that "women don't like her" and complained about having to listen to her "shouting." 

Will Trump's gender-based attacks on Clinton backfire? Or is he once again demonstrating his uncanny ability to put a finger on his rivals' weaknesses?

Political observers were shocked that Trump, whose unpopularity with women are extremely high, would seemingly kick off the general election with gender-based attacks. But the real estate mogul has frequently proven himself "crazy like a fox" during this primary — making inflammatory statements that appear to be unforced errors, but end up solidifying his popularity with Republican voters (just ask John McCain, "Little Marco" Rubio and "Low-Energy" Jeb Bush).

Was this a #GoodCallTrump or a #BadCallTrump (for his campaign)?

The Votes Are In!
Some voters agree that Clinton has taken advantage of her gender in the campaign.
