    Poll: GOP establishment candidates falling

    Poll: GOP establishment candidates falling

    (CNN)A trio of Republican establishment favorites -- Jeb Bush, Scott Walker and Marco Rubio -- are all losing ground in the party's 2016 presidential field, a new Fox News poll shows.

    Donald Trump, meanwhile, continues to dominate the race -- earning 25% support nationally while another outsider, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson, is running second at 12%, and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, known for locking horns with Republican congressional leaders, is third at 10%.



    Bush, the former Florida governor, has dropped to 9% -- fourth place, down from 15% and second place in a Fox News poll conducted earlier this month, before the first GOP presidential debate.

    Walker, the Wisconsin governor, meanwhile, is tied for fifth, at 6% -- down from 9% earlier this month. And Rubio, the Florida senator, is now at 4% -- in ninth place, and down from 5%.


    The results -- with outsiders at the front of the field and establishment favorites struggling to gain traction -- reflect a shift among likely Republican primary voters toward candidates who challenge the political hierarchy.


    In the new Fox News poll, formerArkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee tied with Walker for fifth at 6%. They're followed by former Hewlett Packard CEO Carly Fiorina at 5%, Ohio Gov. John Kasich at 4%, Rubio, and then New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who both at 3% support.

    The poll was conducted Aug. 11-13. It has a margin of error of plus or minus four percentage points.

    It's probably more accurate to say that the shift is away from politicos who can't be trusted to support or defend policies which benefit regular Americans.
