Donald Trump is polling far, far ahead of his GOP competition because the billionaire developer understands what the rest of the pack doesn't, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay tells Newsmax TV.

"What the others are not getting, [former Arkansas Gov. Mike] Huckabee's the only one that's really getting it, is that people are dying for and demanding leadership, number one, and Donald Trump is providing that," DeLay said Monday on "The Steve Malzberg Show."

"Secondly, they want a fighter. They want someone that will stop what's going on in Washington, D.C. and he's proven that."

But DeLay is unsure whether Trump has the integrity to remain in front.

"When we get it down to his principles, I don't know that he's all that principled a man," DeLay told Steve Malzberg.

"Maybe things will change, but right now, he is reflecting at least what the Republican voters are demanding and that's leadership and a fighter."

A Monmouth University poll released Monday shows the billionaire now leading his nearest rival by a 2-1 margin among GOP voters. The poll found Trump besting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush 26 percent to 12 percent, respectively.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is in third place with 11 percent support; Texas Sen. Ted Cruz and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee are tied for fourth place with 6 percent; and Ben Carson is at 5 percent.
