While Donald Trump continues to remain the leader of the pack among GOP presidential nomination candidates in national polls, he holds no favor with the group of business leaders who comprise the CNBC CFO Council.
The CFO Council represents some of the largest public and private companies in the world, collectively managing more than $2 trillion in market capitalization across a wide variety of sectors. Nearly half of the council participated in this quarter's survey.
Seventy-eight percent of those polled believe former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush will garner the GOP nomination. (Last quarter Bush received 72 percent of the vote.)
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker, who was second in May's survey, had a significant drop in votes this time around. In May, 11 percent of the council believed Walker was likely to grab the nomination. He is now tied with former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina, Ohio Gov. John Kasich and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, at just 6 percent.
A wide swath of the GOP field has been completely dismissed by the council, including current front-runners Donald Trump and neurosurgeon Ben Carson, who received no votes.
