Although Donald Trump may be a well-known GOP presidential candidate, a new Gallup poll released Thursday shows that the real estate mogul is not well-liked.

According to the poll, 91 percent of U.S. adults were familiar with Trump, but 59 percent had an unfavorable view of him — the most negative of any candidate in either party.

Thirty-two percent said they had a favorable view of him, giving him a net-negative favorability of -27 points.

Trump's latest favorability rating is 13 points lower than Florida Gov. Jeb Bush with whom 78 percent of respondents were familiar.

On the Democratic side, front-runner Hillary Clinton led all candidates with 94 percent of U.S. adults who said they were familiar with her. However, her net favorability rating was -4 points with 45 percent having a favorable view and 49 percent having an unfavorable view.

In terms of recognition, the top four candidates are also the bottom four candidates in terms of negative favorability ratings:
  • Hillary Clinton, -4 points;
  • Donald Trump, -27 points;
  • Jeb Bush, -14 points;
  • Chris Christie -5 points;
However, in terms of overall recognition, Gallup shows that former neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson has seen the largest gains in public familiarity. Over the last five months, Carson has seen a 30-point increase in favorability from 30 percent to 66 percent.

According to the poll, Carson and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio also had the largest net positive favorability ratings:
  • Ben Carson, +6 points, 30 percent unfavorable to 36 percent;
  • Sen. Marco Rubio, +5 points, 28 percent to 33 percent.
Gallup gathered the results as part of its rolling U.S. daily survey taken from Nov. 23-Dec. 7, polling a random sample of 6,603 adults via landlines and cellphones, with individual respondent pools ranging between 1,800 and 1,950 adults.

The margin of error for samples in which respondents rated each candidate is plus or minus 2 percentage points.
