Former President Bill Clinton was clearly still working through his post-election feelings when he told a local New York reporter that President-elect Donald Trump “doesn’t know much,” but “one thing he does know is how to get angry, white men to vote for him.”

At the Republican National Convention in July, Stephen Bannon praised his former website to a reporter, declaring: “We’re the platform for the alt-right.” But on Tuesday, President-elect Donald Trump told the New York Times that Bannon, his pick for chief White House strategist, isn’t part of that white supremacy movement.

Call it pink and blue America. To the many divides this ugly presidential campaign has exposed, add the chasm over the treatment of women, the plight of men and the proper roles of each. This was an election that showed how much we still talk past one another when we talk about gender.

Hillary Clinton is hoping to make history on Tuesday by being elected the nation’s first woman president. While the impact of Clinton’s gender on her candidacy is viewed very differently by her supporters and voters who back Donald Trump, there also is a gender gap among Clinton’s supporters.

How will fathers vote Tuesday? As the polls tighten, that’s one of the many questions I’m looking to have answered when the voting stops. We’ve all heard about Hillary Clinton’s lead with women voters and particularly with college-educated white women.

History could be made in next week’s election — not only in the possibility of electing the first female president, but in the possibility of the largest gender voting gap in the modern era. Women have voted far more heavily Democratic than men in presidential elections since 1996, and the biggest gap thus far has been in 2000, when women preferred Al Gore over George W. Bush by 10 points, while men chose Bush over Gore by 11 points — a 21-point total gap.

Campaigning in Ohio today, President Obama issued a challenge to male voters — asking them to examine whether it’s sexism that’s keeping them from voting for Hillary Clinton.

Hillary Clinton appears to have closed what was once a large gap in support among male voters with rival Donald Trump, according to the latest ABC News poll. Male respondents reported support for the former secretary of state at 44 percent to Trump’s 41 percent — a major swing for the group, which had backed him throughout the campaign.

Even before the vulgar debut of the phrase “locker-room talk,” or the front-page accounts of sexual assault on airplanes, or the national debate over what constitutes an improper amount of pageant-winner weight gain, there has been much that’s split American men and women apart this year when it comes to electing a president.

Rob Kearney is a middle-aged Republican, veteran and father pictured with a blonde-ringleted little girl nestled at his side in a new Hillary Clinton campaign flyer. It shows how her team is trying to do what was considered impossible a few weeks ago: run up its margins in battleground states by peeling away some of Donald Trump’s core constituency of white male voters.
