Seven in 10 people — including nearly half of Republican voters — have an unfavorable view of the GOP front-runner, according to a new Associated Press/GfK poll. 

The numbers come after a particularly bad few weeks for the presidential candidate that included controversial comments on abortion and his campaign manager facing a battery charge. 

The 70 percent unfavorable rating compares to a January survey conducted by Gallup that showed 6 in 10 voters viewed the tycoon unfavorably. 


Those feelings stretched across most demographics and political leanings, the AP poll finds. 

A majority of men and women, young and old voters, and conservatives, moderates and liberals all share a negative view of the tycoon. 

The majority of whites, Hispanics and blacks also share those views, the poll shows.
