WATCH A Look Back at Some of Trump's Most Controversial Comments About Women

Donald Trump was mostly right today when he said he is doing “very well” with female voters, as exit polls show he has won the majority of women's votes in most of the GOP presidential primaries and caucuses.

Despite his critics and a new ad out today attacking the perceived offensive remarks he has made about women, Trump insists he has a strong relationship with female voters.

"If you look at women’s polling leaving the booths, I'm leading by a lot and I've done very well with women," he said today on "Good Morning America."

Trump has won the biggest percentage of women's votes in 11 states, according to ABC News' exit polling data in the 15 state Republican primaries and caucuses so far this year.

He lost the majority of the women’s vote to Sen. Ted Cruz in Iowa, Oklahoma and Texas, and Sen. Marco Rubio won more of the female vote in Virginia.

Trump had the most success with female voters in Missouri and Massachusetts, where he received 46 percent of the women's vote, followed closely by the 45 percent female vote he secured in Nevada.

Even though he appears to be having strong turnout among women, he is still having more success with men. In all of 15 states so far, Trump received between 4 and 36 percent more votes from men than women.

The same is true in a head-to-head comparison with Cruz, for instance, where aggregated exit polling data show Trump leading among women by 3 percentage points, 31-28 percent, compared with 40-28 percent among men.

The closest gender gaps were in Iowa, where he only had 4 percent more male voters than female voters, and Nevada, where he had 4.26 percent more male voters than female voters.

The biggest gaps were in Michigan, where he had 36 percent more male voters than female voters, and Alabama, where there were 30 percent more male voters than female voters.

The gender gap in the Republican voting pool needs to be taken into account when looking at those numbers as well, but that spread ranges from being evenly split to 11.3 percent more male voters than female voters. So it would not necessarily account for all of the difference in Trump's spread.

Controversial comments that Trump has made about women in the past -- whether it be in a series of Howard Stern radio interviews or remarks he made on the campaign trail about former competitor Carly Fiorina or Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly -- have been well-documented.

Some of those quotes were used in the new ad released by an anti-Trump group called Our Principles PAC, which is run by former Mitt Romney deputy campaign manager Katie Packer.

Trump said he had seen the ad but brushed the criticisms aside.

"It was a Romney deal," Trump said on "Good Morning America" today.

"It's just a lot of sour grapes."
