Donald Trump is now at the top spot in the Republican presidential race with more than 40 percent of GOP voters rooting for the billionaire, based on a new CNN/ORC poll.

This marks the first time that the real estate mogul has soared past the 40 percent mark in the CNN/ORC polling by achieving a score of 41 percent. Four out of 10 Republican voters all over the United States say they will support GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump in the 2016 elections, according to CNN.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, on the other hand, got 19 percent in the same poll. Florida Sen. Marco Rubio came in third with 8 percent, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson got 6 percent, Florida Gov. Jeb Bush got 5 percent, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got 4 percent. The rest of the Republican candidates scored 3 percent or less, the report details.

In the December CNN/ORC poll, Trump's standing was at 39 percent, with Cruz coming in second at 18 percent, and Rubio trailing behind at 10 percent. This shows that Trump's higher mark is not that far compared to how he fared last month.

The said poll was conducted via telephone from Jan. 21 to 24 among 1,002 random adult respondents.

Another poll from Fox News reflects that 31 percent of New Hampshire's likely Republican voters will choose Trump as their president. Cruz scored 14 percent, followed by Rubio with 13 percent and Ohio Gov. John Kasich with 9 percent in the poll, Christian Today reports.

Meanwhile, Bush and Christie both scored 7 percent, while Rand Paul and Ben Carson came in next with 5 percent each. Carly Fiorina got 3 percent and Mike Huckabee got 1 percent in the poll, the report relays.

Another Fox News poll for the Iowa primaries reflects Donald Trump's increasing support from likely Republican voters in the state. The billionaire's support from Iowa increased from 23 to 34 percent. Cruz's ratings, on the other hand, went down from 27 to 23 percent, while Rubio got 12 percent. No other candidate got a double-digit rating.
