August 2016 Pew Poll

Pew asked voters how important the election of a woman president would be historically, regardless of their support for Hillary Clinton in 2016. Six of ten voters reported that electing a woman president would be very or somewhat important, and 38 percent said it would be not too or not at all important. Just one-third of Trump supporters, compared to 84 percent of Clinton supporters, said that electing a woman president would be historically important.
