A new Monmouth University poll shows former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who had been considered the GOP presidential front-runner before entering the race this summer, is continuing to bleed support.

According to the poll, the results were:
  • Donald Trump: 28 percent
  • Ben Carson: 18 percent
  • Ted Cruz: 10 percent
  • Carly Fiorina: 6 percent
  • Marco Rubio: 6 percent
  • Jeb Bush: 5 percent
  • Mike Huckabee: 4 percent
  • Rand Paul: 4 percent
  • Chris Christie: 3 percent
  • Rick Santorum: less than 1 percent
  • George Pataki: less than 1 percent
  • Lindsey Graham: less than 1 percent
  • Bobby Jindal: less than 1 percent
  • John Kasich: less than 1 percent
  • Jim Gilmore: less than 1 percent
The results were mostly unchanged from Monmouth's September poll. Most stayed within 2 percentage points of last month's support, which is within the poll's margin of error.

But Bush has fallen in every Monmouth poll taken since the summer and is no 10 points below his July numbers.

"The money train may be chugging along for the Bush campaign, but the polling train has been steadily losing steam," said Patrick Murray, director of the Monmouth University Polling Institute.

The poll also found Bush to be the only GOP candidate who has made a significant drop in his favorability rating. He currently is 37 percent favorable/44 percent unfavorable. He had a positive 52/30 in August.

The poll surveyed 1,012 adults from Oct. 15-18 via telephone. The GOP sample of 348 registered voters has a margin of error of plus or minus 5.3 percent.
