A new Monmouth University poll released Wednesday suggests that if the GOP primary goes to a brokered convention, the majority of Republicans want the party to unite around Trump.
54 percent of people polled said the party should back Trump is he fails to capture the number of delegates needed to secure the nomination before the convention. More than a third of the respondents said a different candidate should be nominated if Trump cannot secure 1,237 delegates in the primary, and 7 percent were unsure.
The poll reflects the answers of 817 Republican and Republican-leaning voters who were surveyed over the phone on March 20-23rd.
According to FiveThirtyEight, Trump currently has 754 delegates, trailed by Ted Cruz with 465 and John Kasich with 144.
The next primary will be Wisconsin on April 5th, where 42 delegates are up for grabs.
