With just 15 days left before the 2016 presidential election, Republican candidate Donald Trump finds himself trailing nationally by about six points.

A RealClearPolitics average of national polls show Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton at 48% to Trump's 41.9% in a two-way race.

Clinton has been rising in the polls in recent weeks. An ABC News 2016 election tracking poll released over the weekend shows Clinton with double-digit lead over Trump. That poll puts Clinton ahead by a solid 12 points.

Clinton's numbers in the ABC News tracking poll, the report said, were "boosted by broad disapproval of Donald Trump on two controversial issues: His treatment of women and his reluctance to endorse the election's legitimacy."

FiveThirtyEight gives Trump a 13.8% chance of winning the election.
