Trump Supporters Tweet #RepealThe19th to Protest Women's Voting Rights
A map by FiveThirtyEight's Nate Silver went viral on Tuesday. The map showed what the outcome of the presidential election would look like if only women voted, versus what it would look like if only men voted.

The map above reveals that if only women voted, Hillary Clinton would win the presidency with 458 electoral votes, and Trump would have 80 votes. But if only men voted in the presidential election, Trump would win the election with 350 electoral votes and Clinton only 188.
Unfortunately, this isn't the first time that #RepealThe19th has appeared on Twitter. In fact, the hashtag has been around for years, dating back to 2011. But, it's definitely started becoming increasingly popular over the last year, which suggests the possibility that it's not as much of a "joke" as some Trump supporters are claiming it to be.
Look below to see how some men and women Trump supporters are asking to take away women's right to vote.

Giving women the right to vote was the first step in the downfall of western society. They voted us straight into communism.#repealthe19th
