Singer Taylor Swift and San Juan Mayor Carmen Yulín Cruz are outperforming President Trump in early polling for Time's Person of the Year. 

Cruz and Swift have both garnered 7 percent of the vote, while Trump trails with 6 percent. 

Time's reader's choice poll will close on Dec. 3.

The magazine's Person of the Year will be revealed on Dec. 6. 

Trump was named Time's Person of the Year in 2016 after his unexpected election win.

“It’s a great honor. It means a lot,” Trump said at the time. 
 
"To be on the cover of Time magazine as the Person of the Year is a tremendous honor," added Trump, who in the past had predicted he would never win the honor.
 
Time Managing Editor Nancy Gibbs wrote that everyone had an opinion on Trump, whether they loved him or hated him. 
 
"For those who believe this is all for the better, Trump's victory represents a long-overdue rebuke to an entrenched and arrogant governing class,” she said.
 
"For those who see it as for the worse, the destruction extends to cherished norms of civility and discourse, a politics poisoned by vile streams of racism, sexism, nativism.”
 
Every president since Franklin D. Roosevelt has made the list at least once — though not necessarily in the same year as their election win.
