Billionaire candidate Donald Trump continues to enjoy high ratings from Republican voters, earning 30 percent of support in a new poll released by Monmouth University.

More importantly, Trump’s favorability ratings continue to tick up as he conducts his media blitz while attacking establishment frontrunner Jeb Bush.

Trump’s attacks appear to be affecting Bush’s ratings, as he has slipped from 15 percent support in July to only eight percent.

Bush’s favorability ratings are also taking a dive — falling from 52 percent in August to 41 percent today. His unfavorable ratings have risen nine points in the same period.

Trump’s favorability ratings, however, continue to rise. Once underwater with a 20 percent favorability rating in June, Trump currently enjoys a 59 percent rating.

Dr. Ben Carson comes in second place with 18 percent support and a sky high favorability rating of 67 percent. Only six percent view Carson unfavorably.

Here is how the current poll stacks up:
