( – Widener University professor James Vike, whose expertise is in United States politics, told Newsweek that it is possible that former President Donald Trump’s political authority could be boosted if he becomes the Republican party’s nominee and wins the popular vote in the general election in November. 

Vike pointed out that this kind of victory would enable Trump to use his popularity in an attempt to convince both legislators and his rivals to agree to his wishes. 

On Sunday, NBC News released a new poll in which Trump was shown to be leading against President Joe Biden in a potential rematch with 47 percent of the vote vs. 42 percent of the vote. The remaining respondents stated that they would either back an alternative candidate or they were still uncertain of who to support in the upcoming election. 

This could potentially mean that Trump might be in a position to win the popular vote victory against Biden, which is something that he had previously failed to do in November 2016. The last time a Republican presidential contender won the popular vote was 2004 when incumbent President George W. Bush had the support of 50.73 percent of voters for his reelection.

The poll also showed that Trump was leading against Biden by 16 percent when it came to who voters believed to be the more effective and competent contender among the two. However, Biden was shown to be in the lead if Trump ended up being convicted of a felony. 

Both Biden and Trump are currently the expected nominees for their respective parties.
