A new Reuters poll shows Donald Trump is maintaining a hefty lead among registered Republicans.

Among registered Republicans, 42.2 percent said they supported the New York businessman, compared to 15 percent for Sen. Ted Cruz and 11.2 percent for Ben Carson.

Sen. Marco Rubio and former Gov. Jeb Bush rounded out the Top 5 candidates, with 8.5 percent of the respondents said they supported Rubio and 7.7 percent supported Bush.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll collects data entirely using online surveys. The data is drawn from online surveys using sampling data developed with several outside experts.

Trump has been at the top of national polls for months, and he leads the pack in New Hampshire and South Carolina. In Iowa, polling averages show that Trump trails Cruz.
