Among Republicans, 39 percent say they know he’s a possible candidate, more than all the other possible candidates combined, the poll showed.

When pollsters asked which possible nominee they have heard most about, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney came in far behind Trump, with only 9 percent of all Americans and 12 percent of Republicans naming him. The rest of the field came in at 4 percent or less.
