Trump is on a roll.
The president is currently the favorite to win the presidency for a third straight term, according to a poll released Wednesday.
The Real Clear Politics average of national polls shows the president leading Democrat Hillary Clinton by 1.5 percentage points, according the FiveThirtyEight model.
In fact, the latest Real ClearPolitics average puts Clinton at a net-positive 6.5 percent, with Trump’s support at 2.7 percent.
Trump has led the polls for two consecutive weeks, and he continues to hold the advantage over Clinton in the popular vote.
The poll also shows Trump with a +3.4 percent advantage in the Electoral College.
He currently holds a 3.5-point lead over Clinton.
Clinton won the popular election in 2016 with nearly 2 million votes, but it’s the Electoral Vote that matters most in deciding who becomes president.
A win by Trump would be a massive upset, potentially making him the first Republican to win both houses of Congress in more than 100 years.
The next president would then appoint an interim president to serve until a permanent replacement is elected.
The latest RealClearPolitics average shows Clinton with a net positive 6.6 percent, compared to a net negative 1.4 for Trump.
Trump’s overall support is at 4.9 percent, while Clinton’s is at a -1.2 percent.
A Trump win would be devastating to Clinton, as it would force her to appoint a new Cabinet and possibly even to seek a second term as president.
The results from the national polls suggest that Trump’s popularity has fallen sharply.
The survey showed Clinton’s approval rating at a record low at 47.6.
In the same poll, Trump’s approval was at 50.2.
Trump’s popularity also dropped sharply in several other states on Tuesday, including Florida, where his approval rating dropped to just 23.9, a record-low.
Trump has also been under pressure to perform better in some key battleground states, including Ohio and Pennsylvania.
The latest RealCPS polls also show Trump losing ground in states that have historically been his most reliable battlegrounds.
