(CNN)It's no secret: President Donald Trump is deeply unpopular among women voters, according to national polls that consistently show him lagging behind his Democratic rival Joe Biden.

Even he knows it -- at a campaign rally in Johnstown, Pennsylvania, on Tuesday, the President made a plea: "Suburban women, will you please like me?"

Speaking at a campaign rally in Greenville, North Carolina, on Thursday, Trump told the crowd that the glass ceiling "broke" Hillary Clinton in 2016 -- and he suggested that the same fate awaits California Sen. Kamala Harris, who's on the ticket with Biden.

The glass ceiling broke (Clinton).

And during a rambling Fox Business interview last week, following the 2020 vice presidential debate between Harris and Vice President Mike Pence, Trump disparaged the senator as a "monster. "

Still, in its own way, Trump's recent dig at Clinton and Harris is striking, arriving at a time when he's struggling with female voters.

"The main thing keeping an anvil on Trump's head in terms of job approval all this four years has been women.

Even women who voted for Trump in 2016 can no longer look away from his sexist (among other things) behavior.

I just kept saying it's locker room talk," Nin Bell, 47, told CNN's Kate Bolduan in a story about the Pennsylvania women who've defected from Trump.

By way of comparison, only 4% of Black women voted for Trump in 2016, according to CNN exit polls.
