Donald Trump remains at the top of most polls, but his support seems to have stalled at a time when other candidates competing for the GOP nomination are gaining ground, a new analysis of recent poll results says.

The New York real estate mogul netted 27 percent support among voters in a Public Policy Polling poll released on Tuesday, and 25 percent in a Pew Research Center poll last week, but the numbers climbed in both polls for his nearest competitors, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson and Sen. Marco Rubio, reports Business Insider.

But the PPP poll showed that while he is in the lead among many demographics, other key metrics are starting to change against him, showing him as being tied in hypothetical matchups with Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton and strong contender Sen. Bernie Sanders, while Carson, Rubio, and businesswoman Carly Fiorina beating them in the matchups.

Trump's favorability rating have also been dropping, while other candidates have seen their numbers rise, reports Business Insider. For example, since the last PPP poll, Rubio's support has doubled nationally, and in favorability ratings, he trails only Carson.

Trump told CNBC last week that that that if his poll numbers drop too low he'd leave the race, but on Sunday, he said on NBC's "Meet the Press" that he believes in polls, but that doesn't mean he's leaving the race.

"How many elections do you see where the polls were wrong? Not that many," he told the program on Sunday.

"You see them, but not that many. If I were doing poorly, if I saw myself going down, if you would stop calling me 'cause you no longer have any interest in Trump because 'he has no chance,' I'd go back to my business. I have no problem with that."
