MIAMI (CBSMiami) – New polls show voters may be starting to tire of the Donald Trump show in campaign 2016.

"I'm number one in the polls by far," said Trump.

Not anymore. Trump's double digit lead over his Republican rivals is now down to only two points, according to a new poll out Wednesday from Public Policy Polling.

Trump grabs 19 percent, followed by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker with 17 percent. Former Florida Governor Jeb Bush has 12 percent while Florida Senator Marco Rubio and neurosurgeon Ben Carson each have 10 percent.

This is the first polling done since Trump's comments, slamming the military service of former prisoner of war Senator John McCain.

It also comes one day after Trump shared the private cell number of another one of his opponents, Senator Lindsey Graham. He said it's all in response to attacks against him.

Trump told CNN that his combative tone might change if he was elected president and he rejected claims from critics who say he doesn't have the temperament to be commander in chief.

Trump also talked about his faith, saying he's Presbyterian and goes to church though he said he doesn't usually feel the need to ask God for forgiveness.

He said he also doesn't see the need to hire political consultants to help him craft his message.  He apparently feels he's got that covered.

"I don't need pollsters," said Trump.
