The online poll was conducted by the Analytics Unit of NBC News and the University of Pennsylvania's Program on Opinion Research and Election Studies over a 24 hour period from Friday evening into Saturday, thus coming entirely after the debate on Thursday evening.
According to poll,
Trump has the support of 23% of Republican voters, followed by
Ted Cruz with 13%,
Ben Carson with 11%,
Marco Rubio and Carly Fiorina tied at 8% and Jeb Bush and Scott Walker at 7%.
The poll showed Trump essentially unchanged from a poll taken one week ago in which he garnered 22% support.
