Poll: Number of Republicans Who Say Trump Will Be Nominee 52%, Down 14 Points in One Month

Start of the Trump slump?


The Donald” continues his downward slide, with this week’s Trump Change survey at its lowest level since we started the regular feature in mid-August.

Rasmussen Reports’ latest national telephone survey finds that 52% of Likely Republican Voters still believe Trump is likely to be their party’s presidential nominee, including 17% who say it’s Very Likely. But the overall finding is down from 58% last week and from a high of 66% at the beginning of this month. At that time, 26% said Trump was Very Likely to be the nominee

Still, the latest numbers remain well ahead of the 27% of Republicans who felt a Trump nomination was likely when he formally announced his candidacy in mid-June. At that time, only nine percent (9%) felt Trump was Very Likely to be the GOP nominee
