Roughly 68 percent of voters polled said they favored Trump over Kasich, who garnered support from 23 percent of voters. 


Trump also beat out Flake, with 72 percent of voters favoring Trump, and 15 percent of voters favoring Flake. 

Kasich and Flake have been two of Trump’s most outspoken critics in the Republican Party, and speculation has swirled around the two launching presidential bids to challenge Trump for the Republican nomination. 

The Ohio governor has proved to be a thorn in the administration’s side, taking opposing stances on issues such as health care and immigration.

Flake publicly ripped into Trump and compared his rhetoric to that of former Soviet dictator Josef Stalin earlier this year. 

Kasich and Flake have both lamented the current state of the GOP under Trump, publicly questioning if there is room for them in the party.
