The real-estate mogul’s support was nearly triple that of his nearest rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, who scored 14 percent in the Monmouth University poll released Monday.
Florida Sen. Marco Rubio was at 10 percent, while Ben Carson had 9 percent. None of the other candidates topped 3 percent.
“It has become abundantly clear that Trump is giving his supporters exactly what they want, even if what he says causes the GOP leadership and many Republican voters to cringe,” said Monmouth pollster Patrick Murray.
National polls last week showed Trump in the mid-30 percent range.
