U.S. Republican presidential candidate, real estate mogul and TV personality Donald Trump acknowledges supporters while formally announcing his campaign for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination during an event at Trump Tower in New York June 16, 2015.

Republican frontrunner Donald Trump has hit a new peak in the 2016 cycle. According to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll, Trump now has 25 percent support among GOP primary voters, marking the highest he's polled since entering the race. And while his support is at an all-time high, his runners-up are closing the gap: Ben Carson is in second with 22 percent, and third-place Marco Rubio moved up two points to 13 percent.
