Donald Trump is currently leading all other Republican presidential candidates in a new nationwide poll.
The real estate mogul and businessman won 15 percent of support from registered Republican voters as their first choice to be the presidential nominee. Not far behind are former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (11 percent) and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul (11 percent) in the new Economist/YouGov poll.
Trump is even more successful when Republicans are asked for their second choice — he garners 12 percent of support, while many others topped out at 7 or 8 eight percent.
However, Trump's lead may not necessarily transfer to success at the voting booth. Twenty-nine percent of Republicans think Bush is still the most likely candidate to become their party's 2016 nominee. Only seven percent of Republicans think Trump will capture the nomination.
Paul is seen as the second most likely candidate, at 12 percent, and he's followed by Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who each got 8 percent.
The random poll of roughly 1,000 U.S. adults was conducted July 4-6 with a margin of error of plus or minus 4.7 percentage points.
The poll was released just a day after Public Policy Polling released numbers showing that Trump was the top candidate among Republican primary voters in North Carolina.
