One in three GOP voters say they'd probably vote for someone else — or not at all — if Donald Trump isn't on the November general election ticket, a new poll shows.

According to the Rasmussen Reports survey released Monday, the breakdown includes 12 percent who say they'd probably opt for another candidate and 13 percent who'd just stay home; 8 percent said they would probably vote Democrat instead if there was a no-Trump ticket.

The poll finds 62 percent of Republicans say they're more likely to vote for the GOP nominee even without Trump.

But on the Democratic side, 80 percent say they'd still probably vote for the party's nominee if Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders isn't on the ticket, 9 percent who vote for the Republican nominee; 6 percent would lean toward someone else and 2 percent would stay home.

Among all voters, 42 percent are more likely to vote Democrat if it's a no-Trump race; 33 percent would still vote Republican. If Sanders is out, 38 percent say they'd probably vote for the Republican nominee — while the same number are leaning Democrat, the poll finds.

The poll's margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.

In other findings, the survey shows:
  • Among independent voter, 33 are more likely to vote Republican if Trump isn't in the race; 8 percent would vote for the Democrat, 17 percent would vote for someone else and 8 would stay at home.
  • If Sanders isn't on the ballot, 21 percent of independents  are more likely to vote Democratic; 40 percent lean Republican, 18 percent would choose someone else and 7 percent would stay home.
