While many Republicans inside Washington see House Speaker Paul Ryan as the leader of the Republican Party, voters see things differently.
A majority of Republican and Republican-leaners who say they are registered to vote trust Donald Trump over Ryan to lead the GOP, according to results from the most recent election tracking poll.
Nearly six in 10 trust the presumptive Republican nominee to lead the Republican Party over the House speaker, while nearly four in 10 trust the speaker more.
These results are according to the NBC News|SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking poll conducted online from May 9 through May 15 of 14,100 adults, including 12,507 registered voters.
While Trump and Ryan engaged in a cordial meeting last week, Ryan hasn’t endorsed Trump. The meeting was a move to create unity within the Republican Party after a tumultuous primary season.
