Republican presidential front-runner Donald Trump is losing momentum following his second-place showing in Tuesday's Wisconsin primary, according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll.

The survey shows 77 percent of likely Republican voters believe Trump is likely to win the GOP nomination, while just 40 percent considers it "very likely." This is in comparison to last week's 81 percent to 42 percent. 

Three weeks ago, following Trump's primary wins, 87 percent of GOP voters believed his nomination was likely, compared to 59 percent who thought he was "very likely" to win. 

The current results are the highest level of doubt Republican voters have expressed in Trump since February, according to the survey.

Among all voters, not just Republicans, 66 percent believe Trump will be the GOP nominee, and 28 percent say that his nomination is "very likely."

However, that number is also on the decline.

Last week 74 percent of all voters believed Trump would be the nominee and 37 percent thought it "very likely."

A new Associated Press-GfK poll showed that 7 out of 10 Americans had an unfavorable view of Trump, including almost 50 percent of Republicans. The AP called the results "unprecedented unpopularity."

Retired neurosurgeon and Trump surrogate Ben Carson said he didn't believe likability matched what voters will do in an election," reports Politico. "Trump has horrible numbers, but they vote for him."

The Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on April 5 and 6, 2016. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points.
