In hundreds of polls he has gone over 43% only a couple of times, the only thing that has varied is SOS Clinton's support. He hasn't gained a single supporter in months.

In an election there are no "undecideds" so the number goes up a bit. I would be astonished if he goes past 46%. Wouldn't be surprised if he is as low as 42%. This is a one issue election "How do you feel about Donald Trump".

The early voting data and anecdotals we're hearing sure do make me think it's possible.

since you specified national popular vote. I think she'll win the electoral votes by a larger margin/percentage.
