With the first Republican debate one week away, Donald Trump leaves a multitude of GOP rivals in the dust, while losing by double-digits to Hillary Clinton in a head-to-head match up.
Quinnipiac University released the latest results of its nationwide poll early Thursday, showing Trump as the favored candidate of likely Republican voters nation-wide.
The outspoken tycoon garnered 20 percentage points in the poll, compared to Scott Walker with 13 and Jeb Bush with 10 percentage points.
But Hillary Clinton continued to dominate the field among all candidates, receiving nearly half of the vote with 48 percentage points, compared to Trump with 36 in a hypothetical November contest.
Trump also tops the "no way" list as 30 percentage points, with Republican voters saying they would never vote for him.
"They love him and they hate him. Donald Trump triumphs on the stump so far, but do voters REALLY want him? Maybe not so much," said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.
"The good news for Secretary Hillary Clinton is that she is over 50 percent among Democrats and has a double-digit lead over Trump."
From July 23 - 28, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,644 registered voters nationwide with a margin of error of +/- 2.4 percentage points.
Poll completed through cell phone and land line calls included 710 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 3.7 percentage points and 681 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 3.8 percentage points.
