    Fifty-six percent of Republicans said they would support Donald Trump for the nomination for US president, according to the poll.

    WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — The popularity of Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump has reached a new high above 50 percent throughout the United States, a NBC News poll revealed on Tuesday.

    Fifty-six percent of Republicans said they would support Trump for the nomination for president, the poll revealed.

    However, 67 percent of Americans, Republicans and Democrats alike, said the real estate mogul does not have the personality to serve as US president.

    Among the voters polled, 22 percent supported US Senator Ted Cruz, while 14 percent backed Ohio Governor John Kasich.

    Trump needs 1,237 delegates to guarantee his nomination at the Republican National Convention scheduled to be held in Cleveland, Ohio in July.

    The 2016 US presidential election will take place in November.
