Trump tumbles in Republican presidential race, Fiorina rockets to second place

Support for Republican front-runner Donald Trump has fallen sharply in the wake of Wednesday night's debate, according to a new poll released on Sunday.

The survey from CNN/ORC found that 24 percent of Republicans and Republican-leaning independents have Trump as their first choice for president, down by 8 percent from earlier this month. Support for former HP CEO Carly Fiorina, who was widely called the winner of the second Republican debate, has rocketed by 12 percent to 15 percent, putting her in the number two position behind Trump.

Other notable changes are Ben Carson's 5 percent drop to 14 percent and Marco Rubio's increase of 8 percent to 11 percent, putting Rubio in the fourth position. Scott Walker dropped some 5 percent, erasing virtually all of his support in the poll to less than 1 percent.
