The real-estate magnate and reality TV star Donald Trump is the leader among the Republicans for the U.S. presidency.


Trump is at 18% support among Republicans, with former Florida governor Jeb Bush just behind at 15%, within the poll's margin of error, according to the new CNN/ORC poll.

On the Democratic side, the CNN poll found Hillary Clinton remains the clear frontrunner, though Sanders has increased his support slightly since last month's poll. Clinton is backed by 56% of registered Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters, while Sanders has inched up to 19% from 15% in June. The rest of the field is about even with where they were before.

The CNN/ORC International Poll was conducted on July 22-25 among a random national sample of 1,017 adults, including 898 registered voters. Results for all registered voters have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points. The registered voter sample included 419 Republicans and Republican-leaning independents as well as 392 Democrats and Democratic-leaning independents.
