JOIN TPM FOR JUST $1

Real estate mogul Donald Trump continued to lead among Republican primary voters, receiving nearly double the support of his nearest GOP rival in a Fox News poll released Sunday.

Trump polled at 25 percent followed by former neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson at 12 percent, Sen. Ted Cruz (TX) at 10 percent and former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush at 9 percent. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker trailed behind the pack at 6 percent.

The survey showed establishment candidates taking a beating compared to earlier Fox News polls.

Walker polled at 15 percent in a Fox poll just a month ago, putting him almost neck and neck with Trump at the time.

Bush saw a 6-point drop in this poll. He consistently polled in double digits since May but has been unable to overcome Trump’s numbers.

Despite his continued poll domination, the Fox News poll found Trump was the least likable of the 17 presidential candidates at 37 percent. (Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul was the closest contender at 11 percent.)

Carson polled as the most likable candidate among Republican primary voters at 19 percent.

The poll was conducted among 1,008 registered voters from August 11 to 13 by cell phone and landline. The margin of error was plus or minus 3 percent.
