The survey shows that 63 percent of Republican and Republican-leaning voters say they trust Trump more than Ryan to lead the party, while 34 percent put their trust in the Speaker.

Ryan, however, is the more trusted picked among respondents from all party affiliations. Sixty percent of likely voters trust him more than Trump to lead the GOP, while just 31 percent trust Trump over Ryan.

Further, 74 percent of likely voters believe that the Republican Party is divided and will still be divided in November.

Among Republicans, 57 percent think their party will still be divided in November, while 35 percent think it will be united by then.

The results are based on a sample of 32,225 likely voters surveyed from Oct. 17-23. The poll has an error estimate of 1 percentage point.
