House Speaker Paul Ryan, despite the support of some establishment Republicans, would be a risky choice as the party's presidential pick, with a new poll showing him losing to both Hillary Clinton and Sen. Bernie Sanders in a general election.

A Rasmussen Reports survey released Thursday finds that the Democratic presidential front-runner tops Ryan 40 percent to 34 percent among all likely voters, while 22 percent prefer some other candidate given that matchup.

Similarly, the Vermont lawmaker leads 41 percent to Ryan's 34 percent, while 20 percent like another candidate. Five percent are undecided in both cases.

The survey also finds that:
  • Ryan earns GOP support only in the high 50s against both Democrats. Up against Clinton, 28 percent of Republicans opt for someone else. If Sanders is Ryan's opponent, 24 percent of GOP voters like another candidate.
  • Ryan is viewed favorably by 59 percent of Republican voters, but 30 percent have an unfavorable view, up from 16 percent last fall.
  • Ryan is viewed favorably by 39 percent among all voters, and unfavorably by 44 percent.
  • Voters under 40 prefer Clinton by 20 points over Ryan, while Sanders holds a 34-point lead. Ryan holds small leads over Clinton and Sanders among whites, but trails by wide margins among blacks and other minority voters.
The survey has a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percent.
