Those running as the anti-politicians in the Republican race for president are moving to the top of the pack, according to a national Fox News poll of voters released Sunday.

Businessman Donald Trump leads the poll by holding steady at 25 percent. In second place with 12 percent is Ben Carson, the former neurosurgeon.

Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, running as the anti-establishment Republican in the race, is now in third place with 10 percent.

And Carly Fiorina, the former Hewlett-Packard CEO who along with Trump and Carson has never served in office before, is now polling in the top tier at 7th place with 5 percent of the vote.

Here are the full results of the poll: Donald Trump is at 25 percent, Ben Carson at 12 percent, Ted Cruz at 10 percent, Jeb Bush at 9 percent, Mike Huckabee at 6 percent, Scott Walker at 6 percent and Carly Fiorina at 5 percent.

In eighth place is John Kasich at 4 percent, followed by Marco Rubio at 4 percent, Rand Paul at 3 percent, Chris Christie at 3 percent, Rick Santorum at 1 percent, Rick Perry at 1 percent, Bobby Jindal at 1 percent and George Pataki at 1 percent.

Notable drops in the poll include former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, who is no longer polling in double-digits, and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who is slipping out of the top 10.
