Billionaire Donald Trump kicked off his 2016 presidential bid just over one week ago and is already polling in the top tier of Republican candidates.

According to a poll of New Hampshire Republicans, the real estate mogul with just under $9 billion dollars in assets is only trailing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

The poll, conducted by Suffolk University, surveyed 500 likely GOP presidential primary voters and found that 14 percent back Bush. Trump is right behind at 11 percent. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio come next with 8 percent and 7 percent, respectively. Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson came in at 6 percent, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie at 5 percent. No other candidates earned more than 5 percent.

On Monday, Trump officially filed his paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission. Early on, Trump announced that he would need to make enough of a splash in order to qualify for the top-tier Republican debates.

Fox News announced its plan to only include the top 10 Republican presidential candidates in its televised GOP debate. Since that first announcement, Fox News decided to host a candidate forum before the first debate (essentially a junior-varsity debate) at 1 p.m. Eastern time on August 6 at Quicken Loans Arena. Bill Hemmer and Martha MacCallum are slated to host the event. The network’s top-tier, prime time debate is happening on the same day, in the same location, at 9 p.m. EDT, hosted by anchors Bret Baier, Chris Wallace and Megyn Kelly.

Trump’s quick splash into the Republican field doesn’t come without its own controversy. While Trump is polling second behind Jeb Bush, he also has the highest unfavorable ratings of any Republican candidate. In the Suffolk Poll, 49 percent of respondents say they have an unfavorable opinion of him and only 37 percent viewed him positively.
