A majority of Republicans wish they had selected a different presidential nominee than Donald Trump, a new poll finds.
There’s a jump in dissatisfaction since the same poll in June, which at the time found that 44 percent believe Trump was the best option, while another 44 percent didn’t.
Trump was one of 17 Republican candidates running for president. When asked whom they’d like to win in a primary do-over, 29 percent of those selected Trump, 15 percent picked Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), 14 percent chose Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), and several other names received less than 10 percent each.
On the other side of aisle, 56 percent of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters are content withHillary Clinton as their party’s nominee, while 32 percent believe there’s a better option. This is up by 3 percent since the same poll in June.
Forty-seven percent of those voters would still pick Clinton if the primary was held again, but Sen.Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) was close at 42 percent. Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley trailed far behind at 3 percent.
The poll was conducted Aug. 24-25 and 1,000 adults completed interviews.
