Remington poll: Ryan leads Nehlen 78-14

Paul Ryan has an overwhelming lead on GOP challenger Paul Nehlen, according to a new poll.

The Remington Research Group found 78 percent of likely Republicans in the 1st CD backed Ryan, while 14 supported Paul Nehlen. The firm’s director wrote in an email it was the first survey the Kansas City, Mo., firm has done in the Ryan-Nehlen match up.

Seventy-eight percent of likely GOP primary voters had a favorable opinion of Ryan, while 15 percent did not.

The speaker, who is scheduled to meet tomorrow with Donald Trump, has faced some conservative criticism in recent days after he declined to get behind the expected GOP nominee. Ryan has said he wants to hear more from the businessman before supporting his campaign.

The poll found 41 percent of 1st CD Republicans had a favorable view of Trump, while 43 percent did not. 

The numbers were worse for Sarah Palin, who said over the weekend Ryan was on the verge of losing his House seat and backed Nehlen. Twenty-four percent had a favorable view of her, while 54 percent did not.

The poll of 442 likely GOP primary voters was conducted Monday and Tuesday using automated phone calls. The results were weighted to match expected turnout demographics in the primary, and the margin of error was plus or minus 4.5 percentage points.

The poll was an independent survey and not commissioned by anyone, the firm’s director said.
