An unusually wide gender gap has opened up among white Catholic voters in the 2016 presidential race, a new analysis showed.

According to the Public Religion Research Institute survey, released Thursday, Trump has the support of 58 percent of white Catholic male voters, and 38 percent of white Catholic women, Religion News Service reported.

Clinton has the support of 49 percent of white Catholic women, and 33 percent of white Catholic men.

Here's the breakdown for the candidates for other religious groups:

  • Among white evangelical Protestants, 71 percent of men and 60 percent of women favor Trump.
  • Among mainline Protestants, 54 percent of men support Trump, and 31 percent support Clinton. Among women, support is divided equally between the candidates at 45 percent.
  • Among black Protestant voters, 90 percent support Clinton, as do 66 percent of independents and 58 percent of non-Christians.
  • Among white Protestants, 49 percent favor Trump, and 39 percent support Clinton.

The analysis has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.2 percentage points.
