Almost half of registered Democrats think the Constitution needs to be updated, according to the results of a new poll.

A YouGov survey about the Constitution included a question of whether there should be another Constitutional convention to update the document that was created Sept. 17, 1787 and ratified the following year.

Forty-one percent of Democrats said the Constitution "should be updated," while 43 percent said it has "held up well."

Only 20 percent of Republicans said they would like to see the Constitution updated, compared to the 68 percent who thought the opposite. Overall, 28 percent of those surveyed called for a new Constitutional convention to update the Constitution. Fifty-seven percent said the document is fine the way it is.

Fifty-three percent of blacks want the Constitution updated, while 23 percent of whites had the same response.

The YouGov study was conducted April 8-10.

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who dropped out of the Republican race for president in March, said earlier this year he would advocate holding a Constitutional convention if he were president to accomplish three things: establish term limits for members of Congress and for federal judges, and to pass a balanced budget amendment.
