    Donald Trump's lead increased by 11 points in the latest Fox News poll over last month — while Ted Cruz gained ground, Marco Rubio slipped and Ben Carson fell precipitously.

    Here are the results released Friday in the latest poll compared with those of last month.

    The most recent survey of 1,013 adults was conducted Wednesday and Thursday. The fifth GOP debate was held on Tuesday in Las Vegas.

    Trump: 39 percent, up from 28 percent last month.
    Cruz: 14 percent, up from 14 percent.
    Rubio: 11 percent, down from 14 percent.
    Carson: 9 percent, down from 18 percent.
    Jeb Bush: 3 percent, down from 5 percent.
    Chris Christie and Carly Fiorina: 3 percent each, tied with last month.
    Rand Paul: 3 percent, down from 1 percent.
    John Kasich: 2 percent, even with last month.
    Mike Huckabee: 1 percent, down from 3 percent.
    Rick Santorum: 1 percent, up from zero last month.
    George Pataki: Zero percent, down from 1 percent.
    Lindsey Graham and Jim Gilmore: Zero percent each.

    For the Democrats, Hillary Clinton continues to hold the lead in the Fox News poll:
    Clinton: 56 percent, up from 55 percent last month.
    Bernie Sanders: 34 percent, up from 32 percent.
    Martin O'Malley: 2 percent, down from 3 percent.
    The latest Fox News poll has a margin of error of 3 percent.

    Trump's lead grows in post-debate poll

    By Lisa Hagen

    Presidential candidate Donald Trump is enjoying his largest lead over the GOP field following Tuesday's presidential debate, a new poll finds.

    The post-debate survey from Public Policy Polling (PPP) released Friday shows the real estate mogul with 34 percent support nationally among GOP voters, up 8 points from a mid-November poll.

    Trump's favorability has also grown. He's rated at 51 percent favorable, 37 unfavorable; an improvement over his 51-37 split in November.

    “As the year comes to a close Donald Trump is just getting stronger,” Dean Debnam, president of PPP, said in a statement.

    “His support for the nomination is growing but so is his overall favorability which suggests his ceiling could be higher than often assumed.”

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) sits in second place, with 18 percent support, followed by Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), with 13 percent. But Cruz’s lead grew 4 points since the November poll, while Rubio remains stagnant.

    “Ted Cruz is getting stronger while Marco Rubio stays in place,” Debnam said. “There’s a long way to go but it’s become pretty clear over the last few weeks who the main rival to Trump is at least for now.”

    The next tier of GOP candidates all poll in the single digits. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush gets 7 percent, followed by retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, at 6 percent.

    Carson has taken one of the biggest tumbles, dropping from 19 percent in the November poll. Following the terror attacks in Paris and California, Carson has struggled to demonstrate his national security bona fides and is sinking in the polls.

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is at 5 percent and former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee both have 4 percent support. The rest of the candidates register at 2 percent or less.

    On the Democratic side, Hillary Clinton saw a slight drop of 3 points since the November poll, but maintains her lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), 56 to 28 percent. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley trails, with 9 percent.

    The poll was conducted from Dec. 16 to Dec. 17, following the Dec. 15 GOP debate. PPP surveyed 532 GOP primary voters and 525 Democratic primary voters via phone and Internet. The margin of error is 4.3 percent.
