Forty-five percent of respondents said they’d pick Trump to be president over Obama, while 44 percent said they’d prefer a third term for the current president, the Morning Consult/Politico poll found.


Late last month, Obama told a CNN podcast that a message of optimism, like his in 2008, could have defeated Trump’s more divisive brand of populism. 

Trump responded with a tweet saying “NO WAY” would Obama have beaten him.

Even though the poll showed Trump slightly ahead, more respondents thought Obama would win a hypothetical matchup with Trump. Forty-seven percent said Obama would win, while 42 percent said Trump would.
