(CNN) – Carly Fiorina surged to second place among the 16 GOP presidential hopefuls after Wednesday night’s CNN debate and Donald Trump lost some support, according to a new CNN/ORC Poll.
Trump still tops the list of Republican candidates with support from 24% of likely GOP voters, but that’s down 8 points since early September.
Fiorina gained 12 points and has the backing of 15% of her party’s voters – pushing her one point ahead of Ben Carson. Marco Rubio is in fourth place and Jeb Bush is in fifth.
The poll is based on telephone interviews conducted September 17-19.
