An NBC News/SurveyMonkey online tracking poll found that 6 in 10 Republicans and GOP-leaners trust Trump more than the Speaker, while only 4 in 10 trust Ryan more.


Republicans who describe themselves as very conservative are more trusting of Trump than of Ryan — 63 to 34 percent — compared to those who describe themselves as conservative or moderate.

Last week, Trump and Ryan met to attempt to mend fences. Ryan still hasn’t endorsed the real estate mogul, but he said the two will have additional conversations in the coming months. Ryan also said both men are “totally committed to working together to achieve” party unity.

The poll was conducted May 9–15 and surveyed 14,100 adults, including 12,507 who say they’re registered voters, via online. The margin of error was 1.2 points.
