A Rasmussen Reports poll released on Tuesday, as House Speaker Paul Ryan participates in the Wisconsin GOP primary, shows that Republicans want Ryan to beat his anti-establishment opponent Paul Nehlen as more GOP supporters want their party to be more like Donald Trump than Ryan.

The survey showed that 63 percent of Republicans favor Ryan's re-election, while only 20 percent do not want him to win.

However, that support for an establishment candidate does not transfer to another question asked of Republicans in the poll, which was if they want their party to be more like Ryan or more like Trump, who is campaigning as an anti-establishment figure.

Forty-seven percent of GOP voters want their party to be more like Trump, while 36 percent said it should by more like Ryan and 9 percent said they prefer neither as a party role model.

Other results from the poll include:

Among Democrats:

  • 54 percent say the GOP should be more like Ryan;
  • 11 percent say it should be more like Trump.

Among the unaffiliated:

  • 34 percent say the Republican Party should be more like Ryan;
  • 25 percent say it should be more like Trump;
  • 33 percent say it shouldn't model itself after either of them;
  • 66 percent of Republicans say that most GOP leaders do not want Trump to be elected president;
  • 50 percent of Republicans say they have a favorable opinion of the job Ryan has done as speaker;
  • 45 percent rate his performance as unfavorable.

The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on August 7-8. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points, with a 95 percent level of confidence.

The New York Times reports that despite anti-establishment sentiment among Republican voters and the fact that Trump only endorsed Ryan a few days ago, the speaker is expected to easily win the primary and become the GOP's candidate for the congressional district.
